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.......... ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 21 Sep 1998 22:26:04 -0500 From: "Ann Yotter"
Subject: Re: [BOND] golf club covers 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.
