This little bib, a variation of the Simple Baby Bib by Colleen Kadleck, is a quick and easy baby knit with both modern (asymmetric styling) and classic (cable and seed stitch) elements.

You can get two bibs out of one 100-yd. skein of worsted- or aran-weight cotton, and each bib requires only a few hours of knitting (making it a great project for first-time cable knitters!). Customize the bib by choosing a yarn color and button to fit the recipient -- for example, this pattern would be quite cute in a green yarn with a bright flower or ladybug button. If you’re worried about little ones chewing on buttons, you can omit the buttonhole/button and sew on a bit of velcro to fasten the bib.
