Are you looking for a crafty gift for the golfer in your life? If you can knit, you can make some golf club headcovers for your favourite golfer. Make the covers in different sizes and colours 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.
Knit the sock
Cast 54 stitches on to the smaller needles, distributing evenly among three of the four needles.
Join the stitches without twisting.
Knit three stitches and purl three stitches all the way around.
Repeat this until the piece measures approximately 12.5 cm (5 inches) from the cast-on edge.
Knit the head
Change to larger needles.
Work in stockinet stitch by knitting every stitch all the way around until the piece measures approximately 28.75 cm (11 1/2 inches) from the cast-on edge.
Tie a piece of scrap yarn to mark the beginning of the decrease section.
Knit one stitch and then knit two stitches together. Repeat this pattern all the way around.
Knit every stitch all the way around.
Repeat these steps twice more. You will have 16 stitches remaining.
Knit two stitches together all the way around. You will have eight stitches remaining.
Cut the yarn, leaving a 15 cm (6 inch) tail. Thread the tail through the needle and through the remaining stitches. Pull tight to close. Weave in any 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.
