Pattern- The Bicycle Saddle Cover by Brenna from Take Back the Knit issue 2
Yarn- Red Heart Soft Yarn, way less than one skein
Needles- size 7 straight and dpns
I changed the pattern a bit to fit my bike seat and I ended up putting it on inside out because I prefer the bottom side to the top. I am going to make a green one for Philip's bike.
Following the bicycle theme, the Vogue Knitting from Winter 2004/2005 contained a pattern for a bicycle bag that I want to make from an old sweater I found in my dad's attic. The sweater is knitted in fair isle with 4-5 colors so it will be a bit of a chore to frog, but the yarn is the perfect gauge and more than I need. I am about to leave town for two weeks and I want to use my time to work on another project so hopefully I will start on this when I get back.
I've got a bike
You can ride it if you like
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things that make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it
