Baby Things: Bib and Socks

on May 10, 2012

I made two more baby items today: a bib, which was mostly just on my own, as below:

Bib front:

With I-hook, chain 32. SC in second from hook, SC across, chain one, turn… continue rows of SC for three or four inches. Then do one row of HDC follow by one row of DC and another row of HDC. End and tie off.

Neck strap:

Chain as many as you need… I think I did about 50. As long as this is long enough, it can’t really be too long, as you can hook the button through any place on the strap.

In second chain from hook, begin row of HDC.

Ch 1, turn and follow with a row of SC. End and tie off.

Button:

Ch 2, SC 6 in first ch.

2 SC in each of 6 (12)

Join with sl st and end.

Then I folded the circle in half and used a tapestry needle to stitch it together, making it smaller and molding it into the shape of a ball of the size I needed. That’s not very explicit, I know, but I just kind of winged it… You could just use a ready-made button!

I also made these baby socks:

My next project is going to be to make a few little music notes to put on magnets and give as little “Thank you” or “Thinking of you” gifts.

My sister keeps telling me I should make an Etsy store to sell things… I keep thinking  that my crocheting method is mostly fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants… I’m not sure it’s marketable! But it’s fun, and that’s what matters. 🙂

Pics? I already packed the stuff up in an envelope! I’ll either get it back out or do another bib later and post that pic. The bib is just a plain, square bib, made for a boy, so it was pretty basic. I didn’t figure baby boys like frills much. 😉
