Here is a hip and happy crochet cover for your back wheel to protect your long Fall coat, and a couple of equally hip and happy crochet bike seat covers.
If that was not all, I even have a complete cover-up for your bike, in case your bike gets cold. Just kidding. Just a picture for artsy inspiration…

If you can read Dutch, here is a free tutorial for this darling bike skirt (literal translation: coat protector). If you are really keen to make one, and don’t read Dutch, leave me a comment below and I’ll see that I’ll translate it from Dutch to English for you.
It won’t be an easy translation as their crochet abbreviations and terms are quite different to ours! So, you have to really want to make this….

A great way to use up some left over yarn, and a nice way to create a soft but funky seat for your bike.
You can make this in a single color, you can use yarn that changes color as the first picture shows, or you can alternate colors to get a stripey version, as the second picture shows.
You can’t see very clearly, but the crochet flower is simply added at the end.
Again, if you are ‘seriously’ interested, I can have this pattern translated for you. Or, maybe easier, I can actually make it for you and give you my crochet pattern. This translation will have to be in Fall, though.
