With dad’s day coming up I thought I’d share the pattern for a golf club cover I made for my father-in-law a couple of years ago. Admittedly, I don’t know anything about golf, but this cozy was a special request so I did my best. I’m happy to say that Mr. Wayne Campbell was quite pleased with the finished product, and I’m hoping that the golfer in your life will be, too. Happy Father’s Day! — Vickie

How cute! Great color combo.
I made one of these for my Dad for Fathers day. Easily the best reaction I’ve ever gotten out of him from a homemade gift! I posted my project on ravelry, but it is not linked directly to the pattern becuase I don’t see it on ravelry. Anyways, here’s my ravely project page for it: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/knitwitenator/clubbed Ill keep an eye out for the pattern page to link it to. 🙂
That’s so nice to hear, Kristina! Yours turned out great. 🙂
Just added it to Ravelry. I don’t know why, but I always forget to do that. I’m all over FB, Twitter, Pinterest & Flickr — but I always slack on Rav.
