This is my one of my signature baby shower gifts. I found this pattern a long time ago and wrote it down in a notebook, so I can't give the author credit. I did make one change to the original pattern: it called for the button to be sewn on after the bib was finished, I thread the button onto the yarn and knit it into place. There are three buttonholes on the strap for different sizing for baby.


Supplies: Size 9 needles, Cotton worsted weight yarn, and 1/2 to 5/8 inch button

~Thread button onto yarn
~Cast on 25 stitches
~Knit every row until bib is almost square, on the next row knit about 3 stitches, place button, then knit the rest of the row. Knit until bib is square (about 3 more rows). I always guess where I think the button should go, so this isn't exact.
~Bind off 20 stitches (you should have 5 stitches left)
~Knit every row until strap is 7-8 inches long from cast off edge
~Knit a buttonhole row: Knit 2 stitches, yarnover, knit two together, knit one
~Knit 5 rows (3 ridges show after buttonhole)
~Repeat buttonhole row
~Knit 5 rows
~Repeat buttonhole row
~Knit 5 rows
~Bind off remaining stitches

You can make a variation where you knit in seed or moss stitch, you want a pattern that is the same on the front as on the back.

Wow, I never thought to just knit (or crochet in my case) a button in place, that's a great idea!

Yeah, I didn't like the idea of sewing the buttons on because these were for babies and I didn't want there to be any possibility that they would come off.
