Help requested re: bib
I finally got a chance to try the burpcloth pattern (I love it, although it's more dull to knit than, say, a ballband....) and I wanted to make a bib to match. I thought it would be cute to do a bib in one color with the other color border all around. But I'm not a talented-enough knitter to figure out how to do that. I started with yellow and knit 3 rows on the bottom of the bib, then decided to do a 3 stitch yellow border on each side, with orange in the middle (see pic). But I immediately figured out that the two wouldn't be attached. So I started just wrapping the yarns around each other but that looked messy, so I decided to alternate 3 yellow stitches and 4 yellow stitches, but that's showing little jogs on the right side... :(
So do any of you have advice for me? I'm not too far in now and could frog at this point, but I need to get it done for a shower gift this weekend!
Or any other ideas (other than striping) to use both colors for the bib would be helpful, too. I don't have enough of either yarn to do a full bib in each color, unfortunately...
Thanks in advance--SOOOO much! :)
