Arm chair covers

Question

Looking for a pattern to crochet arm protectors for my couch & recliners. The type of covers that slip over the ends. I don't want to use a granny square pattern, my couch arms are big & round. 

Any suggestions on where to find a pattern is greatly appreciated!

 

Merry Christmas to all

I did a quick search.  Most likely you will need to customize something to your taste.  Think about the shape, basically a rectangle with a half circle at the end.

There are vintage lace patterns for just covering the arm.  You could make a half circle to attach to that or square it.

Thank you Diana.

I agree with NCcountrygal, I mostly do thread lace crochet and what popped into my head is the vintage thread 'antimacassar' patterns.  But these had no shape to them, they laid flat over the arms and where the head would be on a tall backed upholstered chair, so 'one size fits all'.

If you only need to cover the top of the arms, the above solution would work (meaning a rectangle, but not necessarily thread)--just make a rectangle, if you want to get fancy go to a site like this and pick a stitch pattern.  This site doesn't want to link to the page I want https://newstitchaday.com/, but at the top click 'stitchionary' then 'crochet stitches', and then a category (bobbles, textured, whatever).  

As I've been typing (slowly, apparently) a couple of new posts have been added, but maybe the newstitch site will have a stitch pattern that will appeal to you for this or a future project.

Oh, it happens when you imagine a particular pattern, but there are simply NO schemes for it. I find it difficult to create schemes myself, so finding the right pattern always turns into a quest. And now I have another problem - I bought a beautiful set of Garden Furniture, and the fabric is already with patterns. I can’t decide whether it’s worth making the covers plain, or still, I can afford to knit something cute. What would you do?
