It can sometimes be hard to find things to crochet for the guys in your life. I decided to do a roundup of crochet patterns for dad with Father’s Day coming up. Most of these there is still time to make them before Father’s day which is fast approaching! I asked my testers for input on what some of their favorites are when I was putting this together and planning the roundup.
I’ll start with the freebies:
1. Father Pullover by Melissa Leapman for Red Heart – I love how simple this sweater looks. And even if you don’t make it for Father’s Day, it is something that can be made for Christmas or birthday. It is a very classic looking sweater.
2. Diamonds in the Rough by Michael Snow – This scarf done in Tunisian crochet is subtly patterned and looks great. Using the Tunisian simple stitch and Tunisian purl stitch, it is an easy and beautiful project. Perfect for the trendy dad in your life!
3. Tunisian Tie by Kara Gunza of Petals to Picots – Another Tunisian crochet pattern, this tie is another simple and quick project. Easily personalized with colors, a new take on a classic Father’s Day gift.
And the paid ones:
7. Manly Man Spa Set by Krista Short of The Evergreen Shore – Who says spa sets are only for women? The manly men in your family will love this one! (pssssttttt….keep your eyes open for a review and giveaway involving this one coming soon!)
8. Ballcap Earwarmer by Lisa Jelle of Kaleidoscope Art&Gifts – This would be great for the guy that likes to hunt! Done in camo yarn or hunter orange or even team colors. The possibilities are endless!
9. Shockwave Beanie by Liz McQueen of Playin’ Hooky Designs – This is the hat that she campaigned for Zac Brown to wear on stage. You can read about that here on her blog. I love how this hat can be subtle or bold depending on color choices.
10. The Tech Lounger by Krista Short of The Evergreen Shore – If you have a techie in your life, this would be a great gift! You could do team colors or just leave it neutral.
So these were some of my favorites. Do you have any favorite patterns for the guys in your life? Which of these are you most likely to make or is your favorite?
