Updated patterns!

I'm in the process of updating my old patterns, particularly the bibs, to include charts. I'm rewriting some of the directions to make the patterns even easier and including alternative methods for beginning the bibs and for making the ties. Look for these patterns in the sidebar to see which ones have been added. It's a slow process, but eventually, they'll all be there!

Difficulty: Easy

Size: approximately 8.50" X 8"

Materials: One skein of worsted weight cotton.

Needles: U.S. Size 6 (4 mm)

Gauge: 4.5 sts. per inch, not critical

Abbreviations:
k = knit
p = purl
sts. = stitches
dec. = decrease

Pattern Note: The edges of the washcloth are worked in seed stitch over the first and last five stitches (p1, k1, p1, k1, p1) and are referred to as “B5”. You might find it helpful to insert a marker after the first five stitches and before the last five stitches.

Pattern: Cast on 38 sts.

Row 1: p1, k1 across row.
Row 2: k1, p1 across row.
Row 3: p1, k1 across row.
