1885 Baby Bib PDF Crochet Pattern (a vintage reproduction)


Instant Digital Download

This charming 1885 Baby's Bib Pattern was inspired by a vintage pattern by Weldon's Practical Crochet first published in 1885. I have rewritten the pattern using yarn and hook sizes that are widely accessible today while maintaining the integrity of the original design.

The bib pictured here was made using Red Heart Eco Cotton in Rose and Sinfonia Cotton in Dark Brown and a US size H (8) or 5.00mm crochet hook. This pattern is a one size fits most.
