This pretty afghan baby bib pattern is made in 3ply synthetic baby yarn, then decorated with crocheted flowers. The afghan [Tunisian crochet] stitch is very effective for bibs because the fabric created with this stitch is thick and the pattern is dense [no spaces]. Good for catching every spill and dribble.
You can also cross-stitch designs over Tunisian stitch for an attractive effect. If you choose to decorate your afghan baby bib pattern this way, you will need a darning needle with a blunt end, to work your cross-stitch design. Standard cross-stitch, where the needle goes through the fabric to the back and then back through the fabric to the front, can create an untidy back to your bib. Instead carefully slide your needle under the two horizontal strands of the tunisian stitch near the surface of your work. This will stop the yarn showing on the back. Check regularly as you work to make sure that nothing is showing.
