That turned out nicely. How big is the bib? My DD and I were talking recently that her store bought bibs were all so small. This looks to be a good size. What yarn did you use?

twoxover - the paw pattern is here: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/pawprintcloth.html
I got it from the KAL thread titled "Dog Lovers Knitalong: pawprint dishcloth".

Marigold, I already sent it to the recipient, so I can't measure. It was knit on 6" needles, and I used 42 stitches. Maybe it was about 9" wide? It was Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn. Here are my notes from the first page of this thread:

I used the paw print itself as-is; the paw dishcloth called for 36 stitches, and I believe that the bib called for 40. I stretched it a bit because I always slip the first stitch, so I used 42 stitches. I added 3 garter stitches at the beginning and end of each row, and used an extra 3-4 rows of garter in the beginning. You might notice that my garter border is wider all the way around, and I did that on purpose. Because the 2 patterns were so close to the same size (with the exception of the straps) it was pretty easy to merge them.

Glad you like it, it was fun! I hope the recpient likes it...
