Maybe I’m a proud design mom but I think that as steering wheel covers go, the construction of it works well. You crochet right around two elastic bands--no seaming, no shaping, just crochet and go. (The pattern describes how to prepare the elastic for a standard steering wheel, and how to make it road-safe when you’re done.)
