Saw this posted on April 1st by HapiKamper.
I thought it was the coolest idea ever!
I’ve been making doily’s into afghans for a long
time but I never would have thought to make a tire cover.
Thanks so much to HapiKampers idea!!!

I’ll probably make many many more.

Yarn is Caron one pounder. I used a size H hook. Followed pattern until I got to the sides of the tire. Row 17.. Did the chain 6 lace until it reached the back of tire then decreased with Double crochet in each chain loop. Made a chain to lace thru the back, cinched up and tied. Easy peasy.
My husband suggested I use elastic so now I am putting tubular elastic thru the back like a regular tire cover…

Look what a fellow raveler ‘camimcc’ has posted about Hapikamper and me on her blog:


Thanks so much!

2nd one is my original pattern I created
using some acrylic scraps of yarn and fiddling with different stitches.
#3 in blue…Made of Cotton.

Bright purple but looks different on the camera
