First up is a bib I call "Turtle Love". I happen to know that turtles have a special signifcance to Flo and her family and I thought she'd like this one. Here's the matching cloth:
I went through a dozen or more versions, before I found one that I liked.
I try to keep most of my patterns a uniform size, which limits me to only so many stitches. It can be tricky to get a design clear enough so you know right away what it's supposed to be!
For my other pattern, I wanted to use a design that utilized all those pretty variegated yarns.
The pattern uses a slipped stitch that makes this super fast and fun to knit. The pattern is easily memorized and if you use the short rows to begin the bib and make crocheted ties, you can finish it in only a few hours.
It also looks nice in a solid color too, I think.
All those little ridges should be good for catching food!
The booklet is for sale at the Dishcloth Calendar website or by going directly to the Peaches & Creme Booklet page here. The booklet has two versions available. The digital download is $12.00 and a printed version is $14.00, plus $5.00 for shipping. There are about 34 pages and 13 patterns, including dishcloths, my bibs, and a bookmark. There are also two pages of links to other free dishcloths. You can check out other designs that are included in the booklet by going to the calendar website.
Please note that these patterns are only available by purchasing the booklet. I will not be posting them here, so please don't beg me. As you know, 99% of all my patterns are free, so please don't begrudge me a couple of designs for sale! You wouldn't do that, would you?
