Several years ago, I saw this steering wheel cozy posted online (I thought it was on Craftster, but it must have been somewhere else), and bought the pattern (by Hook Candy). I finally decided to make it only to discover that the pattern had been lost when my computer (and backup hard drive) crashed. The pattern designer kindly sent me a new copy Smiley Cheesy



I had to play around with the gauge since my steering wheel was 2 inches smaller than the one in the pattern, plus I crochet on the tight side, but I finally managed to get the length right. The pattern is crocheted into a strip and then seamed together. It uses a long crocheted chain, woven between stitches, to secure it onto the wheel.



I needed to wait to put it on the car since I had to bring it in for service, and when I saw the black handprint left on the door by the technician, I was glad I waited Smiley  I did give the steering wheel a good cleaning before I put the cozy on. I made mine out of acrylic yarn, so I can easily take it off to wash when needed.



Now, when winter finally arrives, my hands won't be so cold in the morning. And, if I leave it on for the summer months, they won't get burned by the hot steering wheel.

Thank you! I'm going to go for a drive in a bit and I'll test it out to see if I actually like using it Smiley

Thank you! I used yarn from my stash, but it's one of my favorite color combos. And, I just took it for a test drive- about 36 degrees outside and my hands stayed warm. It was also a nice cushy grip Smiley
