A simple baby bib pattern that would show off the beauty of stockinette stitch, for those of us who may prefer its smoothness to the texture of garter stitch.

The bib can be knit in a solid color, with contrasting cords, variegated yarn, stripes, embellishments, etc.

The pattern assumes you know how to cast on, knit, purl, increases, decreases, short rows, i-cord, applied i-cord. There are brief directions for short rows and applied i-cord, as well as links to tutorials for each.

January 2017: Version 2.2 released to make the short row sections more clear and update links to tutorials.

May 2013 - I have discovered that the short row tutorial I link to in the pattern is no longer online. Here is another online tutorial to help folks new to short rows and wrapping and turning: TechKnitting (look for the illustrations with the #3)

Jan 2012 - Errata for directions for M1R and M1L corrected and new version of PDF (v. 2.1) uploaded.

Jan 2011 - A new version of the PDF which uses short rows for the shaping around the neck has been uploaded. This easier to knit and it provides a more finished look. The pattern provides instructions if you have never knit short rows.
