Crochet Steering Wheel Cover Patterns

Sharing is caring!

Everyone’s talking about Christmas presents to make but that’s not the only thing going on at this time of year. In many places, the biggest thing on people’s minds right now is IT IS COLD. Of course, knit and crochet accessories, clothing, and blankets are perfect for dealing with the cold. But here’s an item that you might not have yet that can bring surprising warmth to your daily life: crochet steering wheel cover patterns!

What Is A Crochet Steering Wheel Cover Pattern?

Immediately when I think of crochet wheel covers, I think of those cute designs that go on the spare tire on the back of cars. They always brighten the day when you see one tooling down the street, don’t they? They’re colorful and cute. And there are some great crochet wheel cover patterns for those tires.

However, a crochet steering wheel cover pattern is different. It’s a cute cozy cover that slips right over the steering wheel of the car. Have you ever gotten into a cold car and touched the steering wheel only to yank back in surprise at how cold it is? No more problem with that once you’ve added a cozy crochet cover to it. (And actually, it’s good for hot places in the summer, too, so you don’t burn your hands on the steering wheel after your car has been sitting out in the sun!)

Of course, this also adds personality and fun to your car. You can make the cover in colors that make you smile. Driving is stressful. Little things like this can reduce that stress!

What Size is a Crochet Steering Wheel Pattern?

Each of the patterns below varies slightly in size. Many fit steering wheels that are 47″ or 48″ round. However, some go up to sizes as large as 55″ around. According to the Steering Wheel Cover Blog, steering wheels range in circumference from 43″ – 54″. They vary in diameter from 14″ – 17.5″.
