Approximately 1.5 ounces of worsted weight cotton yarn, like Sugar ‘n Cream
Size US 7 (4.5 mm) 16 inch circular needle
Tapestry needle

Appoximately 4 stitches = 1 inch

Approximately 7 inches wide by 8.5 inches long.

Read instructions through before beginning.
Cast on 64  stitches with a stretchy cast on.  Join in the round, being careful not to twist.

Rounds 1-8:  *K1, P1.  Repeat from * around.  (64 sts)

Round 9:  K1, P1, 25 times (50 sts).  Okay maybe this is a little obsessive, but I like the starting tail to be at center back.  Bind off 28 sts, be sure to keep your bind off loose. (36 sts remaining)

Remainder of bib is worked back and forth in rows.

Rows 1-2:  K across.  If you are as obsessive as I am:  On first row 1 only: knit to last stitch, slip that stitch as if to purl to the right needle.  Pick up both loops of the first bound off stitch with left hand needle, slip the slipped st back on the left needle and knit it and the picked up loops together.  If not as obsessive:  just knit that last st and get on with row 2. 
 (36 sts)

Row 3:  K2tog 2 times, (yo, K1) 4 times, K2tog 4 times, (yo, K1) 4 times, K2tog 4 times, (yo, K1) 4 times, K2tog 2 times. (36 sts)

Row 4: P across. (36 sts)

Repeat rows 1-4 8 times.

Knit 4 rows.

Bind off.  Weave in ends.

Fantastic!! I have been looking for a great drool catcher for my little girl. Thank you for the pattern ;-)
