Hi Everyone...

I want to make my boyfriend golf club covers like these:

http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/lionbrand/index.fcgi?page=http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/

But  I don't know how many to make, how many will need numbers, etc.  I know nothing about golf, and don't want to ask him because it'll give away my surprise.  Can anyone clue me in?

Also,  I notice that these were featured in Golf Digest Woman.  Do they look too girly?  And if they do, does anyone have other links to patterns?  (I haven't really searched yet ...)

Thanks in advance for any opinions and advice you might have.  Grin

Aww, poo.  I feel so uncool.  I should have known a topic named golf club covers would get ZERO replies.  Ah, well, it was worth a preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'shot................')

"Yes! A reply," You'll be saying...!

I don't think they look girly or uncool. In fact very stylish. I'm sure he'll love them.

Normally people have three covers. For a 1 wood, a 3 wood and a 5 wood (though not everyone uses a 5 wood - might have a 7 or 9 instead). So you could go for two with numbers (1 and 3) and one without. (You only use them on wood clubs to stop them clunking against each other).

One problem is, some people these days use absolutely HUGE woods (think frying pan), and those covers don't look too large (unless they're really stretchy). Is there a roundabout way (one of his golfing friends?) you could find out whether he uses those mega-enormous clubs that are quite fashionable, or just standard size ones. I suppose if he keeps his bag at home, though, you could just whip up a cover and try it on... (The biggest one will be the 1 Wood,  a round club with a number 1 on it!)

Good luck!!

Eva

Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

I agree- those covers are cute  Smiley  Although if you're still concerned about them looking girly, you could leave off the tassels & pom poms, or only make the kind that resembles a gym sock.

Haha...exactly.  Well, maybe with a little more elation.  Kinda like-YAHOO!

Thanks guys for answering my questions.  I now know that I don't have to make one for every single club in his bag.  Which, by the way, I got to look at when we went to L.A. this weekend (he took me to the SUSS store!)  And I will probably leave off the tassels, but the pompoms---they get to stay!  I also have to look at the knitty pattern.

Again, thanks a million!

I actually am planning on making the knitty covers for my dad, has anyone made them? What size needles did it take to get gauge?  (26 sts/28 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch with baby-sport) I don't have quite the collection of dpns that hunting for gague requires sometimes.
And, is the fair isle scary? I haven't tried it before.

Hi-

I am now sewing and wonder if any one has ideas/patterns for *sewn* golf club covers rather than knit? 

Thanks,

Dayna
