I don’t have too many babies in my life, so the need for a baby knit rarely arises. I have seen many sweet patterns – booties, sweaters, baby pants – but when I saw the Mason-Dixon Knitting Baby Bib o’ Love, I knew that would be a knit to make. It’s the simplest of shapes and patterns, it can be customized with embellishments and fun yarns, and it is garter stitch. Easy, sweet, and a perfect gift.
…and now that I am confident enough in my knitting to actually give it away to people (it took me awhile), I thought this would be a really cute pattern for my co-worker’s baby-to-be. We are having her baby shower at work today, and I finished this right in time.
Baby Bib o’ Love
Pattern: Mason Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Cascade Luna (cotton)
Needles: Size US8
She chose not to know the sex of the baby before birth, so I just took a chance with some greens and blues. I used this same yarn for the scarf I made for my International Scarf pal last spring. It is a great cotton that I bought in NYC at Purl Soho.
I actually chose a different button that the one pictured here. I didn’t get the chance to sew it on until this morning (cutting it close!) I went with a wooden button like the ones used on my Sesame Cardigan.
I hope my co-worker likes this one!
…now I get to work on some socks…
