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!

I love this pattern, it is easy and fun to make! I have made many of them for gifts. Thank you for the pattern.

Is it possible to make this into a blanket? I would like to make duck baby blanket but can not find one anywhere. Your ducks are so cute, I love them both.
