One Hour Bib



A very last minute baby gift. Actual time elapsed depends on your personal knitting speed.

Materials

Size 11 needles

Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream yarn, 1 skein (120 yds) – held double throughout

Tapestry needle

Gauge in garter stitch – 3.5 stitches per inch. Exact gauge is not essential

Pattern

Using long tail cast on and holding two strands of yarn together throughout, cast on 24 stitches. Knit all stitches in every row until piece measures 8.5 inches.

On the following right side row (tail from long tail cast on will be on the right-hand side of the piece, bind off all stitches, but leave last stitch on the needle. Do not break yarn.

Keeping the right side facing you, rotate the work 90 degrees to the right, so that the active stitch is now in the upper right corner of the piece. Pick up one stitch for each garter ridge along this edge.
Knit three rows even.

On the following right side row, K3, bind off to last three stitches, K3. Knit back and forth on three active stitches until strap measures 10 inches. Bind off. Break yarn. Join yarn to wrong side of the three remaining stitches. Work even until second strap measures 10 inches. Bind off. Break yarn. Weave in ends.

Is there a photo of this bib somewhere? I'm having trouble visualizing it. Is there a photo here or on ravelry?

I made your limeade bib (in cornflower blue) and loved the way it came out.
