This is a bib I made for my boy. I got the chart for the skull somewhere here on craftster, and I modified a pattern for a bib. I used cotton yarn, which holds up well to washing, but is kinda stiff to wear all day. I used single crochet throughout, and my biggest hassle was tucking in all the yarn from where I changed colors. Sure, you could just hide the unused color, but that makes for a bulkier bib, and then you would see the unused color a little too much for my liking.

Here is the chart I used for the skull. This is NOT my design, but a chart I found here on craftster months ago and printed out. I have modified it a little, because I didn't want just one stitch per row, and the circled square is either the center, or a nice place to start if you want to embroider it.

The bib pattern I got off the sugar and cream website, here is the link http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=123&PHPSESSID=14b787b29e371ec1f4d7a29d8ff4f4d8 you will have to sign up to get the pattern, but it is no biggie because it is free, and there are some pretty useful, but kinda basic patterns on there.

Once I got the pattern, I counted how many stitches wide the chart was, and I plotted out where that would be in the bib pattern. Then I think I did the first three rows green, then started the chart. Again, I wouldn't suggest carrying the unused color, but if you add colors the Russian way, (or what ever it is called when you change colors using either a single crochet stitch or slip stitch and not cutting the yarn and tying it on) although if you wanted to carry the unused color around they eyes and nose, that wouldn't be too bad. After the chart was done, I just made sure there were the same amount of plain green rows, as there were on the bottom, before I started decreasing for the neckline. This really sounds harder than it is, I hope people try this because I had a lot of fun making this.

Good luck, and happy crafting!

I love it.  The colors are great.  I should make one for myself.  I'm a pretty messy eater.
