Help me figure out how to save my last 4 cauliflowers from bolting, I read I can use pantyhose to cover my cauliflower to save them, instead of using their leaves?

The only thing that will save them from bolting will be to keep them from warm weather. The pantyhose method is mainly used to control worms and other insects that will feast on them, but it will not likely have much affect against bolting. This article is for helping to prevent bolting in broccoli, which you may already know is very closely related, and has very similar care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/bolting-broccoli-growing-broccoli-in-hot-weather.htm
