Crochet Monster Baby Bibs

I am having a lot of fun with this new Lion Brand Modern Baby Yarn! The colors are bright, cheerful, and the perfect palette for these fun Crochet Monster Baby Bibs! The yarn is washable so bibs can be worn and washed. Although I would recommend using them for drools instead of foods :)

Materials:
Lion Brand Modern Baby Yarn. I used Purple, Turquoise, Chartreuse, and Yellow. Keep in mind this is a light worsted weight yarn. You can purchase and read more about this yarn HERE. I did use a bit of worsted weight white and black yarn for face embellishments.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Button or velcro depending how which closure you choose
– Tapestry needle

    I love your blog. Your crochet patterns are so cute. I have come back to your blog so many times I figured it was time to subscribe….which I just did.

    This is gorgeous thank you so much for the pattern. I have just made one for a friend's first grandchild but I think mine may have come out a little too big. Would you mind letting me have the measurements of yours?

      and mine came out too small. smh. BUT I am using I love this yarn because I couldn't find Modern Baby, unless I wanted to pay a huge amt for them online (not including shipping & handling)! So I frogged the whole thing and made it bigger, added button holes and then finished it off with a tie string. That way It will grow as the baby does. I however am not sure about sharing a picture of it on FB because I altered her beautiful pattern. I do believe she mentions something about this in the small print at the bottom of the page. but I wouldn't swear to it.

    I was just getting ready to put the sc around the edge and noticed my straps are too short but I followed the pattern. There are only 10 rows making the strap but in the picture there are more like 18. Help please. thanks!

    I just made one for my cousin’s new baby.
    I made the straps longer and narrower though…only 8 SC across and then skipped 8 SC to make 8 SC for the 2nd strap. I made 20 rows long instead of 10.

    Hi =)
    These are so cute! Really nice work, practical and so funny =P
    I was wondering how much yarn you approximately used for the upper part (blue/purple) of the bib?
    The yarn I want to work with, comes in skeins half the size of the one you’re using. Will that be enough, or would I have buy two skeins? =/

    Thanks =)

    I made this today but as I am doing the first strap I notice the whole thing seems very small. I didn’t use the same yarn but it’s thicker so I thought would be bigger. What are the dimensions of your?? Or what is your stitch gauge??
    Thank you
