  3. Right here is where I get confused.
    row 25: sc tog, sc across, chain 1 and turn (6 sc)
    tog is together as I remember. is that in the same chain?
    Help please.

  4. Yes, tog means together. What you're doing is decreasing at the beginning of the row. In Row 24, you should have only sc'd in the first 7 stitches, then ch 1 & turn (to start Row 25). At the beginning of row 25, you'll decrease one stitch by sc the first two stitches together, then sc regularly in the remaining 5 stitches. You'll continue to decrease at the beginning of each ODD row by sc'ing the first two stitches together, until you end up at Row 35 with only one stitch remaining. This should give you a slanting line on the inside neckline of the bib. Let me know if that helped!!

    Thank you a million times over for sharing this pattern! I had envisioned the same thing in my head, but cannot design patterns. I changed it a bit for newborns. I used a G hook and only crocheted a total of 19 rows (which includes the Foundation Row) before I started the neckline rows. They came out adorable!

    For adorable newborn bibs, I used a G hook and crocheted a total of only 19 rows, which includes the Foundation row. Then I followed the rest of the pattern to make the neckline. I was able to make 3 bibs from a 2.5 oz skein of Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn and used variegated scraps for the trim. Quick & easy - made one in an evening! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! I just completed 7 different bibs x2 for a friend expecting twins! Such fun making them!
