Pattern: Down with Pigs Bib

A good bib can make the difference between your favourite baby looking like a pig, or a dainty little bird. :) This bib has a lot of advantages. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-absorbent. It fits on over baby’s head, so it’s hard for wee ones to take it off themselves. And of course, it has geek cred.


  • About 8.5” x 13” laid flat

Materials needed

  • Yarn: Worsted weight, approximately 68 yards of each colour - model used Bernat "Handicrafter Cotton", 100% cotton, 80yds/50g, colours 00001 White and 13530 Country Red
  • Needles: 4.5mm circular needle, at least long enough to hold 108 stitches
  • 2 stitch holders
  • Spare length of yarn about 8” long
  • (optional) Safety pin


  • 31 sts (15.5 per side) and 22.5 rows to 4” in double knitting stocking stitch on 4.5mm needles

Exact gauge is not necessary since bibs don’t require precise fitting; however, if your gauge is a bit off, it’s better to knit larger than smaller, in order to ensure that the opening for the head isn’t too snug
