And that's how I came up with the idea to make them some crutch covers. I assumed that the uncomfortable crutches were a big problem with anyone who had to use them, so after I got home that night, I searched the internet to try to find patterns that I could use. I was absolutely shocked that I couldn't find a single one. I did find a few sites that I could order some covers on, but nothing with a pattern.
So I came up with the brilliant idea to try to crochet some crutch covers on my own. I went through my scrap yarn box and found some yarn and then sat on the couch and thought about how I could make the shape I wanted. After thinking for awhile I decided to try to wing it and I ended up making some crutch covers that I was hoping were the right shape and size. I finished the first set up Sunday afternoon and was worried all evening that they wouldn't fit. I knew Tami was working Monday, so Maddie and I went up to visit. To my amazement, they not only fit on the crutches, but they fit PERFECTLY! I was soooooo excited. Tami was so happy with them, she wants me to make a few more sets for her in different colors. :)
Unfortunately, I never took photos of the first set, because I wanted to make sure they fit before I committed to the pattern. So you'll all have to settle with photos of the second set that I just finished. I think the purple I used in the first set was so much prettier, but this pinata varigated yarn is nice too. Let me know what you think!
Please excuse the ripped up bar stool that these are sitting on. :)
That's all for now! Later!
