We love yarnbombing projects that transform everyday objects into surprising characters. While we expected kids to love them, we were surprised how much these characters took adults out of their daily doldrums by adding a little fun to their lives too. Now you can help fill the world with whimsy and bring a smile to the faces in your neighborhood. This pattern includes instructions for a ridgeback or flat body. Make one for your favorite bike rack today!
You can work this pattern with any yarn or hook, as long as you follow the gauge and directions for adjusting it to fit your pole.
