A Quick Father’s Day Knit

A hole-in-one type of gift for the special Papa in your life! Knit him one or two or twenty golf club headcovers in his favorite team colors and send him down the fairway in style.

Loom: KB All-n-One Loom

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle, piece of contrasting color yarn, row counter (optional).

Gauge: 9sts x 13 rows= 2 inches in stockinette.

Tips:

  • When increasing, I recommend to remove the stitches off the knitting loom to a piece of scrap yarn, reposition the knitting loom to the new peg number and then place the stitches back on the loom, skipping the pegs where you need to increase.
  • When decreasing, I recommend to remove the stitches off the knitting loom to a piece of scrap yarn, reposition the knitting loom to the new peg number and then place the stitches back on the loom, putting 2 stitches (or more as needed) on each of the pegs).
