When you add crochet to your bicycle, you make it more personal. Your choice to use colorful crochet or a sophisticated simple color palette says a lot about who you are. It makes your bike easier to find in a crowd. And it will make you smile each time you set off for a ride. These bicycle crochet patterns include crochet skirt guards, bike seat covers and more.

Bicycle skirt guards (which have also been called dress guards and coat guards) are designed to fit over the back tire of a bicycle to prevent skirts and other long clothing items from getting stuck in the spokes of the wheel. They are functional but they can also be beautiful. Personalize your bike with any one of these beautiful bicycle skirt guard crochet patterns.

It is a lovely, lacy design for beautifying your bike.
