Basic Crochet Bib

If you've read my blog since I had my son Reuben, you will know he drools. A lot. And by a lot, I mean he is a small waterfall. He drools a lot because of his allergies and his sinus blockage, but that is besides the point-- the point is he always needs bibs! We have bought bibs on Etsy, but because of the sheer number of bibs he goes through, I also make my own. I've sewn some, and now I am crocheting some.

Crochet bibs are easy, quick and fun to make--I can whip one up in thirty minutes and I can crochet while nursing. I've already made him two! And since they use buttons, they are harder for him to remove than the knit ones I make.

To crochet this bib you will need a 4.25mm crochet hook, cotton yarn, a button and a yarn needle that goes through your button. I used about 75 yards of yarn, split into two colors!
