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

Approximately 4 stitches = 1 inch

Approximately 8.5 inches wide by 8.5 inches long.  

Read instructions through before beginning bib.

Cast on 64 stitches with a stretchy cast on.  Place marker, join in 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 29 sts, be sure to keep your bind off loose. (35 sts remaining)

The remainder of bib is worked back and forth in rows.  We will continue with the same numbering sequence.

Row 10 (right side):  *K1, P1.  Repeat from * across.  (35 sts)
On row 10 only: work 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 11.  (35 sts)

Row 11:  *K1, P1.  Repeat from * across, end with K1.  (35 sts)

Repeat row 11 until bib measures about 8 to 8.5 inches from cast on edge.

Bind off.  Weave in ends.

I like your imagination.
Sweet and you made it so easy for us to recreate. Thanks for sharing this beautiful craft. Would love to see you at my blog too :)
