Your bib is so cute! I bought two balls of 'Peaches and Cream' so I think I have enough to make three bibs. (Which is good since I know three people who are pregnant right now!) :)

Thanks for sharing it with us. I want to try your elephant pacifier bib, too.

This is such cute pattern! I made the bib today and it turned out great! It was so easy and quick to make. I'm going to be making a couple more of them to donate to a charity! Thanks for sharing! :)

Thank you, Mariah, for your kind comments! I am so glad you liked the Duckie Bib. What a nice thing you are doing by making and donating some bibs to charity!

Mariah said...

I love crocheting, so I am really enjoying making things for charity. I just have so many things that I want to make and so little time. Between crocheting, practicing piano, and my schoolwork, I am super busy!

CJ said...

On the Duckie Bib, Rows 26 & 27: Sc in ea sc across to last 2 sc, dec over last 2 sc, ch 1, turn. (8,7).
What does "dec over last 2 sc" mean
Thank you

jocelyn said...

In answer to the question above, "dec over next 2 sts" means decrease over next 2 sc. To decrease a sc, draw up a loop in the first sc, draw up a loop in the next sc, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. You have decreased one stitch.
HTH!
