I have been asked by a friend to crochet covers for her arm chairs however I do not have any patterns. Please could someone point me in the right direction. Thanks

We recently got a new recliner and I was going to crochet arm covers and also make one for the back top where my husband's head rests against it. My hubby said just to buy some hand towels and they would work just fine. I did that and found some in a color that blends right with the chair and they have been working just fine. If I were going to make them, I would just crochet rectangular pieces in the size required for the chair. Then use the little upholstery screw things (don't know what they are called) to keep the towels (or crochet pieces) in place.

Are you asking for covers for the arms and backs of chairs, typically called antimacassars or chair sets? Or are you asking for covers for the entire chair?
Thanks,
Shirley

I also place one in the seat of his chair, and wash them all frequently.

Hi Shirley, sorry I should have been more specific. Yes it is just the covers for the arm of the chair. Thanks

Depending on what you are actually looking for you can look at doily patterns. Years ago my grandmother bought a new rocker and wanted to cover the arms. We looked through her different doily books and found a pinwheel pattern that she liked that made a 14 inch doily. That is when we found out that my pinwheel turned a different direction than Grammy's. I crochet left handed and she was right handed. We put the doilies on her chair so that they turned toward her because she felt like she was being hugged when she sat in the chair.
