Golf head covers are a nice gift for a crochet designer to make for a golfer. You can create custom-made head covers or mitts for clubs to protect them from damage during transit and the trek over the course. Make crochet covers using a pattern that reflects the personality of the golfer who will be using them.
The main function of a crocheted head cover is thick padding for protection against chipping in woods or dings and nicks in some irons. Heavy yarn will add density to the padding for the head covers. Double strands of 3-ply yarn will add more bulk and a tighter weave to the covering. Tightly packed fiberfill stuffing sandwiched between the crocheted cover and a cloth liner will add an inch or more of extra protection for the heads. A hook and loop closure will allow the golf enthusiast to secure the covers tightly in place.
You can crochet simple covers in a golfer's favorite colors. Fitted covers made with single and double crochet stitch can be whipped up in a few hours. Hand-embroider or use a filet crochet technique to embed initials into the individual covers for a custom-made touch. Solid colors in richly dyed fibers or combinations of geometric crochet patterns add pizazz to plain covers. Use yarn that reflects the owner's business logo, favorite team or school colors.
Motifs and Logos
Crochet stripes, shapes and circular patterns to add a decorative touch to the covers. Patriotic strips and star shapes are nice crochet pieces for a veteran. Use a filet crochet grid pattern to incorporate a team logo on covers for the sports fan. Football helmets, horseshoes and other symbols of a career or hobby work well on golf club covers. A business logo can also be incorporated into the design when you use a grid paper to make the pattern.
Characters and Animals
Protect your golf clubs with favorite crocheted character covers. You can use superheroes, cartoon, movie and anime characters for inspiration when designing crocheted covers. Round golf ball characters with decorative hats and gesturing arms will surely be a conversation piece for any golfer with a sense of humor. Make a pet or woodland animal for the nature lover. The most comical animal golf club cover for movie lovers might be the whimsical groundhog character from "Caddyshack."
