Baby Bib-O-Love meets Vivian Høxbro!
had told me I was going to be
knitting baby bibs and dishrags 6 months ago I would have said, uh..... no.... but
here I am... Those Mason Dixon Knitting gals really got me hooked with their book
and pretty soon I was also reading their blog, the KAL and knitting bibs.
I was in one of our many LYS's the other day and the
owner was doing something called "domino" knitting. Always
curious, I asked, "What is that?" One thing led to another and soon I
was reading Vivian
Hoxbro's book, "Domino
Knitting". Of course, the first
thing you are to do is to make her 9 basic squares. OK, I didn't make ALL 9, but
there was one that caught my eye, #9. She called it "beaded". Vivian,
like Ann and Kay, is big on the virtues of the garter stitch.
I just had to make one
of those cute bibs and...
Baby Bib-O-Love meets Vivian
are basically a slipped stitch
worked over 2 rows of garter stitch in a contrasting color, aka a mosaic
Here is a
shot of my bib in fuchsia and green:

found on my blog
as well as a description of the pattern stitch.
bib pattern, refer to your copy of "Mason Dixon Knitting".
Whichever way you
choose to do the
colors, or the bead/stripe patterns,
this technique is a great addition to your pattern stitch techniques and looks
like you did a lot of work, when you didn't. And, who doesn't like
The bib is great BTW.
