The Sydney dinner and nursing cover is a versatile pattern. It makes a great bib alternative for teens and adults. The scarf can be used to protect clothing while eating. If made with a terry layer, it can be used to keep people who drool dry. When made in fleece, it will keep you warm in winter. There is a lengthen/shorten line on the pattern so you can adjust the scarf to fit children as well as adults. The scarf is generous enough to be used as a light weight nursing cover. The scarf can be made in less than 30 minutes. This is a perfect project for a beginner.
