Now that the we are in the full swing of Winter, it gets darker much earlier (this just one of the many reasons I am not a fan of Winter!). However, here in Chicago diehard bike riders continue their commute to and from work on their bikes, even in the dark and sub-zero temperatures. It is very common to see a red blinking light coming right at you, indicating a bike rider is headed your way. To add to the reflective bike accessories, I decided to create yarn tassels that actually reflect light! The yarn tassels add a playful, yet functional touch to any bike.
You may be asking yourself how are yarn tassels going to help me be seen while biking at night? Well, this is no ordinary yarn! This yarn, made by Coats and Clark Red Heart, has reflective yarn strands running through it! When light hits the strands, it reflects! You could whip up other yarn items to use as reflective bike gear, like maybe a hat, scarf, or mittens.
