If you’re a crafty type who loves to wear dresses and ride bikes, here is a project just for you! It’s a crocheted dress guard! Not only is it beautiful and ornamental, but it also serves a great function. These have been featured all over the interwebs, but I happened to spot them on one of my favorite knit and crochet blogs, Las Teje y Maneje. I have yet to actually find a pattern, but below is a link where you can buy one from Semeli (manufacturers). If any of you do find a patern, please share!
From the blog:
“Simeli is a Dutch company that is dedicated to creating bicycle crochet ornaments, or what they themselves call “Dress Guard” (as the Dutch dictionary is a coating that partially covers the rear wheel of the bicycle to prevent it from catching with a jacket or a skirt). Thus, the “Dress Guard” is considered a symbol of the emancipation of women, power cycling even wearing long skirts.”
