BOTH SIZES:
Work 1 ridge. Loosely bind off as follows: * bind off 4 stitches, 1 yarn over, bind off yarn over *, repeat from *-* the rest of row. This is done to avoid a tight bind-off edge. Fasten a button in one end of bib (button through 1 of the holes inside the 2 edge stitches in garter stitch).
