Crochet Golf Club Cover Pattern


Father's Day is right around the corner and if your dad or husband is a golfer, they will love these crocheted golf club covers! You can even personalize them with their favorite sports team colors and label each one with its wood number. My husband happens to be a big Michigan fan and wanted me to make make his covers in maize and blue. I am planning on making more but I ran out of blue yarn.

This is a pretty simple pattern that works up quickly. I am going to give directions for the yarn color changes as shown in the picture, but you can choose to skip that part and make the covers in a solid color or switch colors as you wish.


Materials:
- Worsted Weight Yarn (I recommend Lion Brand Vanna's Choice)
- Size I-9 crochet hook
- Tapestry Needle


Abbreviations:
Magic Ring = tutorial HERE
SC= Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
FPHDC = Front Post Half Double Crochet
BPHDC = Back Post Half Double Crochet
HERE is a video on how to make the Front Post and Back Post Half Double Crochet

Note: Be sure to weave in ends as you go. You also may want to stitch on your numbers before creating the bottom portion.

Create a large pom pom and stitch to the top of the cover. HERE is great tutorial from Stitch11 on how to make a secure pom pom!

I created numbers to label each of the clubs (3 wood and 5 wood) by creating a long chain and then stitching them on with the a tapestry needle in the shape of the number desired. Moogly has a great tutorial on how to make crochet numbers. Although I don't think they will be small enough for this particular project, you can use it as a guide.

  1. In Spain the Father's Day is on March 19 (Saint Joseph's Day). It's a great gift idea for golfers.
    Un beso!

  2. How I wish I had this pattern back at the end of October into November of 2012!! We only have a child sized putter, and I was making a cover for my full grown cousin(http://institchgratification.blogspot.com/2013/05/golf-club-cover.html). There was a lot of guess work and crossing of fingers. Being still relatively new to crocheting things other than potholders, I did not think to write down my stitches, so I am thankful that there is a pattern I refer back to if I am ever needed to crochet a golf-head cover again. :)
