Are you looking for a crafty gift for the golfer in your life? If you can knit, you can make some golf headcovers for your favorite golfer. You can make the covers in different sizes and colors to help distinguish the clubs from one another.
You need to have basic knitting skills to complete this project. You need to be able to knit, to purl and to knit in the round.
Things You'll Need
Size 5 US double pointed knitting needles
Size 7 US double pointed knitting needles
8 oz. worsted weight yarn
Knitting the Sock
Cast 54 stitches onto the smaller needles, distributing evenly among three of the four needles.
Join stitches without twisting.
Knit 3 stitches and purl 3 stitches all the way around.
Repeat step 3 until the piece measures approximately 5 inches from the cast-on edge.
Knitting the Head
Change to larger needles.
Work in stockinette stitch by knitting every stitch all the way around until the piece measures approximately 11 1/2 inches from the cast-on edge.
Tie a piece of scrap yarn to mark the beginning of the decrease section.
Knit 1 stitch and then knit 2 stitches together. Repeat this pattern all the way around.
Knit every stitch all the way around.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 twice more. You will have 16 stitches remaining.
Knit 2 stitches together all the way around. You will have 8 stitches remaining.
Cut yarn, leaving a 6 inch tail. Thread the tail through the yarn needle and through remaining stitches. Pull tight to close. Weave in loose ends.
If you don't like to knit in the round, you can work the piece back and forth in rows and then stitch a side seam.
