A couple weeks ago, I was crocheting… and it hit me: almost any amigurumi head would make a perfect golf club cover!
Let me show you how to do it!
Step 1: Select your animal pattern
All that you need is an animal pattern that has an opening at the neck. Most FreshStitches patterns are designed this way, but you want to make sure to pick something like Nelson the Owl and not Cliff the Brontosaurus.
You’re looking for a pattern with a seam at the neck… that’ll tell you that the instructions for the head leave a nice opening!
Step 2: Crochet the head and ribbing
Here’s an easy little pattern for the ribbing:
With your desired color, ch 16. Turn.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across.
Rows 2-end: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each st. (15)
Crochet through the back loop only, and you’ll get a nice little ribbing effect.
Continue working the ribbing until it is long enough to go around the opening of the neck. I made mine slightly smaller than the neck so the cover will fit more snugly (which ended up being 46 rows).
Step 3: Assemble!
Fold ribbing in half so that the first and final rows touch. Whipstitch together.
Your ribbing should look like a cylinder with openings at the top and bottom and vertical ribs.
Attach along one edge to the neck of your animal.
Step 4: Enjoy!
