Child-proof Door Knob Covers


I have been waiting forever to share this pattern with you! We had clouds for weeks and I couldn't get a good picture.... finally the sun came out!! This is an awesome little pattern that is a great stash buster. It whips up in minutes, which is great if you want to make a bunch (like I did)! These make great baby shower gifts and your friends will be super jealous of all your sweet knobs.

I like my house filled up with color. The walls are brown and since we are renting, I have to put color elsewear. We got a couple of the standard child proof covers a couple months ago but they are bulky, noisy and down right ugly! Not to mention I don't want my daughters to be able to get to the lock. I'm tired of being locked out. I knew there had to be a better solution!

I have included some notes and changes to suit the pattern to your particular knobs.



Child Proof Door Knob Covers:

Size H hook
Worsted weight yarn

NOTE: For a larger knob, dc 9 into magic circle and follow the rest of pattern.
For a shorter knob, change last dc row to a sc row, or remove row altogether.

Round 1: dc 8 into magic circle. Tighten circle, ch2 (8)
Round 2: 2 dc in each st around, ch 2 (16)
Round 3: *2 dc in first st, 1 dc in next* Repeat around, ch2 (24)
Round 4-5: 1 dc in each around (24)

Tie off and weave end into the inside.

To finish:
Cut a length of yarn and weave it through the last row.
Slide cover over knob and tie three tight knots to fasten to knob. Snip ends close to knot.
The cover will feel tight but loosen up as you use it.
