Last year for Christmas, I made my dad 5 different team color golf club covers. And since he’s retired and lives a life of leisure, he literally uses them all the time. So, guess what, dad? You’re getting golf club covers pretty much every year forever. But since there are only so many team colors I can do, I wanted to do something different, and the only logical thing to do was Mickey Mouse and Yoda.
What you need:
tapestry needle for sewing on ears
sc= single crochet
DC= double crochet
FPDC= front post double crochet
BPDC= back post double crochet
HDC= half double crochet
HDC2tog= half double crochet 2 together
Time needed for this project: This is a quick one, so you can easily finish one while watching your favorite Christmas movie, and maybe even start on the second one.
Note: These are both meant to be for a club smaller than a driver, since my dad already had so many bigger covers. If you’d like to make this for a driver, I recommend continuing to increase in round 6, adding a few more rounds at round 15, and only doing two rounds of decrease instead of 3.
