A little while back my husband asked if I could knit him a golf club head cover. The only guidance he gave me was that he wanted it red and white with thick stripes. You can imagine my surprise (and excitement!) I love new projects!!!!
After some research I found a simple pattern and got right to work. This project took me about a month as I only spent a few minutes knitting in the evening after kids were in bed.
It's a very simple head cover, but we were both happy with how it turned out!
For those that want to crochet a golf club head cover - here are the basic steps!
- Cast on 25-40 stitches (this will depend on the club you are using it for. In this case it was a hybrid club - I did around 30 stitches)
- Crochet the next 2 stitches, then purl 2 stitches, alternate every 2 until you finish the row. Continue this pattern until you have reached the length of the base. (I used another club head cover to get the proper length)
- When you are ready to start the head, crochet the entire row, and then purl the next 2 rows, then crochet the next 2 rows. Continue in the 2 purl/2 crochet rows switching colors as necessary.
- When you've reached the desired length of the head, bind off. I choose to do a seam up the back and across the top to close the cover. It worked great! You could also decrease stitches for a more rounded top.
