Fore! . . . or Five or Six Golf Club Covers

The modern game of golf originated in Scotland in the 1400s, and the first written mention of golf clubs appeared in a 1504 reference to the clubs of golfer King James IV of Scotland.  And since that time, golfers have been fanatical about keeping their golf clubs from banging into each other. 

Golf Club Covers
A golf club covers' job is to keep your clubs from rattling around in the car or as you zip your cart from hole-to-hole. They're basically big thick socks - but you don't have to turn a heel!  I've engineered these Golf Club Covers so that the heavy ribbing in an elastic-blend yarn provides the stretchy-cushion. The pattern is written in three sizes and stretch to fit even the biggest "Big Bertha" driver.

The Golf Club Covers are knit with CoBaSi Plus.  It's the same Cotton, Bamboo and Silk blend as the superfine CoBaSi, but CoBaSi Plus is a medium worsted weight yarn.  The cotton, bamboo, and silk give it durability, drape, and sheen. There is also 21% elastic nylon, giving the finished yarn bounce and "memory" that is difficult to achieve without wool. And the covers are machine-washable, so go ahead and throw your clubs in the mud after a bad game!

Bonus:  The Golf Club Covers pattern is free with the purchase of CoBaSi Plus yarn!

Double Bonus:  CoBaSi Plus yarn is on sale at 20% off!

Golf Club Covers
The Golf Club Covers pattern is a terrific "blank canvas" … knit them in one or two-colors, or striped!  With 35 colors of CoBaSi Plus to choose from, you can choose your team colors, your school colors, or your employer's company colors.  Knit a red and green cover for Christmas or a brown and orange cover for autumn golfing.  Unlike socks for your feet that have to be knit in a matching pair, your club "socks" don't have to match and you can make each one creative and unique.

As a kid I remember the neighborhood dads lugging around their clubs with an old tube sock on the end of each club.  Yuck!  Your clubs each deserve a handmade "sock" of their very own. 

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
