Teddy for Tots Bib (fundraiser)
Best of all, all profits from sales of this pattern are donated to the Hospital for Sick Children (aka “Sick Kids”) in Toronto, Canada (www.sickkids.ca), which is one of the world’s leading pediatric health care institutions. It has helped children all over the world with its groundbreaking research and care. My family in particular has benefitted from this marvellous hospital numerous times, and I’m delighted to be able to give back to this worthy cause. Thank you so much for your support!

Exact gauge is not necessary since bibs don’t require precise fitting; however, if your gauge is a bit off, it’s better to knit larger than smaller, in order to ensure that the opening for the head isn’t too snug.
