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.

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.

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

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. 🙂
You rock! I love your blog! Going to use this useful pattern soon! 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE these!! My son made the school golf team and I am hoping to make some for him!! (although my first set will be Scarlet and Gray! Lol…sorry couldn't resist! Go Bucks)
Do you have a pattern for irons? Your driver patterns are very nice, but I need instructions for other clubs as well. Thanks!

I just want to say how much I enjoy all of your patterns. You are truly gifted and inspirational, thanks for all the wonderful posts!
Hi, does anyone know how to attach the pom pom to the top? I can’t turn the head cover inside out.
I follow the directions up to the end of the cover for the club head, but don’t understand how to continue on the the stitches that cover the shaft of the club. can you help?
Nancy Select... cusack says
How do you do the decrease??? It just says Decrease, single crochet in the next four, continue around. What does this mean??? If you single crochet all around you’re just doing what you did the previous rows.
Would you able to update this with gauge information? I swatch religiously as I tend to stitch tightly. Thanks!

What is the stitch Guage. My mitt looks large to me.
Do you have other golf head crocheted patterns?
On this pattern for the golf club covers, are the rows 24-45 worked as 1fphdc, then 1bphdc in each row or 1 row all fphdc and then the next two all bphdc? Thankyou.
Is there a printed version
merci pour ce tuto , j’ai quelques amis (es) golfeur pour qui j’aimerai les faire ; je me suis inscrite à ta newsletter, car j’ adore tes ouvrages, à bientot !
For rows 24 – 45, what should the stitch count be for each row?
I do not have instructions for the ribbing part of the cover. Have rechecked your directions several times and see instructions just for the head portion of the golf club covers.
Barbara Measell says
How about a pattern to knit the golf club head covers? I don’t crochet so can’t use this
pattern. I would love to knit a set for my husband.
Pat Baldwin says
This pattern says crochet hook size 1-9
Can anyone tell me what size is best to use?
