Hi Guys,
Ya know every time I write a pattern I can't help but change it a bit
after I have already posted it....You would think I would learn by now
to either wait to post it or not to fool with it....Anyway here are some
changes to this pattern....I thought they came out too long
before....Sorry for the inconveniece....Gina

Cotton Golf Club Covers

Gauge: 20 st x 28r = 4 inches
Materials: 8 balls of Lane Borgosesia Golfo Cotton-96 ounces per ball
	   1 ball of contrasting color yarn and or contrasting texture- I used
jiffy chunky weight yarn in a  	  	       mohair look( I forget what
itís called)
Keyplate: Dot 2

CO 40 stitches with closed edge cast on......K 30 R........Drop and
latch up every third stitch to form ribbing....I latched up every other
ladder to form an exaggerated rib....... Increase 1 stitch on each end
.......K 1 R slowly.....K 87 more rows........Leave a 2 foot length of
yarn at the end............Thread this length threw the stitches on the
needles before you remove your knitting from the
machine.........Duplicate stitch numbers to the covers in the
contrasting color before you finish the covers.......Gather the needle
stitches and stitch up the side......Make a pompom for the top with both
colors of yarn and attach to the top........You can as an option make a
crochet chain length long enough to attach all the covers to one
another....Or make a cord on the magic cord machine if you have
one........Make enough to cover the golf clubs your golfer requires to
be covered..........

Hi Susan,
  I haven't made Golf club covers, and I thought I had some but couldn't
find them.  However, I made a bottle cover last year that I thought could
be a good club cover.  It was a rectangle knit 40 sts on KP3 with worsted
yarn done overall 80 rows ( a golf club might get away with only 60 rows)
and seamed up one side.  The end was decreased down evenly so a bottle
would sit flat, but for a golf club, you only need to knit 2 tog across the
row once and then draw it up.  I would also do about 30-40 of the rows in
ribbing to draw it in and put 1 -4 stripes in the ribbing to mark the
different clubs.  Make a crochet chain to join all the tops together and a
pom on the top of each.
