Bicycle Skirt Guard
Dare to pedal in your longest skirt with a pair of crochet skirt guards. Both the smaller 1⁄4- wheel and larger 1⁄3-wheel size hook up in just a few hours. Snap it on the fender with a handful of binder clips, and easily snap it off again to wash or swap for another color.
This is a great starter project if you’ve never crocheted lace before. It’s written in normal crochet terms, just as in row-by-row instructions for a ripple stitch or a granny square. It works up fast because you’ll use a larger hook than usual for lace. While it’s an intermediate crochet pattern, we wrote it with extra clarity with beginners in mind. Required skills include chain, skip, slip, and single through triple crochet. Plus, the Knits for Life group on Ravelry has an active discussion thread for this pattern where we’ll answer any question in a day or two.
