Things You'll Need
- Worsted-weight yarn (1 oz. per club cover)
- Size G and F crochet hooks
- Tapestry needle
Protect your clubs from scratches and damage with a custom set of crocheted golf club covers. Choose worsted-weight yarn in a color that coordinates with your golf club bag, or colors of a favorite sports team. It only takes basic crochet skills--the ability to crochet in the round and double crochet--to make a single golf-club cover to protect one special club, or a whole set.
Chain four to begin your first golf club cover. If you are making a cover for a wood, use the larger G hook. Use the F hook for an iron. Slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring and chain one.
Single crochet 12 stitches into the ring, slip stitch into the the top of the first single crochet to close the ring and chain three to start the next round. At the end of each round, you will slip stitch and chain three to begin the next round.
Double crochet into the stitch at the bottom of your chain three. Make two double crochets into each stitch around. End the second round and begin the third.
Double crochet in the next stitch. Make two double crochets in the following stitch. Alternate one and two double crochet stitches to the end of round three.
Begin round four. Make one double crochet in each double crochet to the end of the round. Continue making one-double-crochet rounds until you reach round 14.
Chain three to begin round 14. Double crochet into the next double crochet. Chain one. Skip one double crochet, double crochet into the next stitch and chain one. Repeat this sequence all the way around to create a row of mesh. End row as usual.
Double crochet into each double crochet stitch, skipping the chain stitches. End the round and begin row 16. Make double crochet stitches into each stitch around until you have completed six rounds. Finish off by cutting your yarn, leaving a 4-inch tail, and pulling the yarn all the way through the last stitch. Thread the tail of the yarn onto the tapestry needle and weave the yarn back into your work.
Make a chain about 14 inches long with your yarn. Finish off. Tie a knot in each end of the chain. Weave the chain through the row of filet mesh in your golf club cover. This will be used to secure your cover to the club.
Repeat for the number of club covers needed.
Use a contrasting color to make a sporty stripe around the top third of the club cover, from rows five to seven. Use the same color to make the tie. Embellish with a pompom at the top if desired.
