It started with a plaid effect golf club cover and then moved on to a baby Yoda golf club cover (I still have a few more Star Wars themed covers in progress), now I have got my next cover completed and this time have gone for a swirl effect with a pom pom detail. This swirl club cover is also slightly larger than the previous plaid and baby Yoda as I needed this one to go over a driver.
I only used 2 colours on this one as I really wanted the swirl to stand out so stuck with just the black and orange. I want to make a couple more of these using some different colour combinations too.
Colour 1 (Black): Hobbycraft Everyday DK in black.
Colour 2 (Orange): Hobbycraft Everyday DK in orange.
Swirl effect golf club pattern:
- 4.5mm crochet hook.
- Wool: 50g balls in 2 different colours, I used black (colour 1) and orange (colour 2).
- Stitch marker.
- Darning needle.
- Pom pom maker/2 pieces of card to make a pom pom 5.5cm in diameter.
- 10cm wide stretchy bit at the bottom.
- Widest point on the upper section – 16cm.
- 22cm tall.
- Change colour on the last yo of the previous stitch.
