I do rather like the shape of this baby bib, but much bigger. Will try it next, maybe in a baby size first though.

The one with the baby reminds me of a shawl - just make it larger and flip it around!

Well, it has some good points. Having fun while you made it is the first. It looks like you used up some stash leftovers. All those colors will disguise spills and last it will do the job.

You could also try a dickie pattern and just not attach the back of it. Cast on some extra stitches at the neck and knit a mock neck in the round.

what I had wanted to ask: What exactly IS a dickie? I saw yours, but what is it used for, normally?

The bib sure does the job.
I do have some load to carry myself, but I really would not wear that in a Hamburger Place or anything. Not because it is not useful, but because I would not want a bib.

But make it "manly" and hand one to my work mate, and he would enjoy his spaghetti at lunch! No protruding body parts but splashy sauce...

if you make a triangular or scarf-like bib.... will you consider that it hangs down? I mean, it might touch your plate when you lean forward, a problem I do have with scarfs. Just to save you disappointments. Either it has to be short enough to stay above the plate or long enough to tuck under the edge of the table.

Oh, stylewise I was thinking of those lobster bibs you get in New England. Maybe make a design into your bib that is food related?


@ShanaHoo:
The Other Purse Stroy was priceless, though. Maybe there is more out there than I thought. Congratulations to your mom!

A dickie is something that you would typically wear underneath a sweater so that it looks like you are wearing a turtleneck or other shirt beneath your sweater when you're really not. I suppose it's for those who don't want the added warmth of actually wearing a turtleneck under their sweater but want the "look" it creates.

I don't think you really see people wearing them anymore. They're a little ridiculous if you ask me ... but to each his own I suppose!

I thought that the purpose of a dickie was to keep your neck warm rather than exposed to the elements. Usually our poor necks go naked. I'm thinking of indoors, when a building is cool and yet you wouldn't wear a scarf on your neck, although you may be wearing a neckless sweater. (I don't think 'neckless' is a word, heh).

Low necked sweater is probably what you mean... And yes, a dicky would keep your neck warm as well as fill in for a deep neckline.
