Here are instructions for an easy, crocheted bib for your baby doll.
This is a "dribbler" type bib that you would leave on a drooling
baby to keep clothes dry and it's cute enough to be part of an outfit.
This bib only requires a small amount of yarn so you can use yarn
that you have left over after finishing another project. For a 12
inch to 13 inch doll I used "Caron Simply Soft" and size "C" (3)
crochet hook. I had "autumn red" left over from a sweater project and
it made an adorable holiday bib for my baby doll. I also made a
slightly larger bib by using worsted weight yarn and a size "G" (6)
hook. Cotton yarn would also work great and would lend itself well
to making this bib for your own baby.
Abbreviations are as follows, SC = single crochet; CH = chain;
DC = double crochet.
Row 1- SC in second CH from hook. SC in each CH across, CH1 and turn.
Row 2- 2 SC in first SC, 1 SC in each SC across 2 SC in last SC. CH
