Pull stitches taken off on the bodkin tight and fasten. Sew side seams - being careful to match stripes. With crochet hook, attach contrast yarn to top of club cover #1, do a 75 stitch chain and attach to club cover #3, do another 75 stitch chain and attach to club cover #5. Make pompoms in contrast yarn and attach.


Knit the club covers in one colour and duplicate stitch the numbers on them. Do each club cover a different colour (great way to use up oddments). For ladies, try punch lace with added lace trim.
