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!

Who says I'm crabby?

I don't want to jinx anything, but I think that we might actually have a summer after all!  It's been so cold here in New England for so long, it didn't look like we'd even have a spring, but it seems to be changing.  In that spirit, I decided to add another water themed cloth that I named "I'm a Little Crabby!)
I knit it up using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton! in aqua. I really enjoyed working with this yarn. It's so soft, although I did have to drop down a couple of needle sizes to get the design to pop. It would make a great facecloth or a blanket square.
The bib is knitted up in my old standby Peaches & Cream. It's a good choice for bibs and holds up to repeated washing. At least that's what I've been told. Unfortunately for me, all of my grandkids are well past the age for bibs!
The cloth uses the same stitch width and row height as my other "water" cloths. I wanted them to be the same size in case anyone wanted to use them together.



 

I might have missed one or two, but I think this covers it!

The pdf patterns are in the sidebar to the right. The bib is also here and the cloth is here.  As always, if you find any errors, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know, although I have knit this crab several times! I did a second version as well with skinny legs, but decided I like the original better!  I hope you do too!

Thank you for the new pattern, Elaine! It really does complete the "water" theme. There's a picture of a "water" theme blanket somebody made in your previous post. It has a duck as one of the squares. Thanks again, you are very creative and do lovely work!

Thank you for your many clever patterns. I have knit several as presents for my co-workers when they had babies.
