10 Modern Father’s Day Crochet Gift Ideas – Free Patterns

Father’s Day Crochet Gift Ideas To Make

This is a collection of Father’s Day Crochet Gift ideas to make for this special day. I have picked modern and useful gifts for the special men in your life.

Father’s Day is such a special day, when we celebrate the important men in our lives. What is a better way to show them how much we care, than with a handmade crochet gift.

Let’s be honest, men are not the easiest to buy presents for, right? I always struggle to buy a nice present for my husband, whether it is his birthday or Father’s Day.

Neither does it help, that the two days are only a week apart in his case!

Not only are men hard to buy for, it is also tricky to come up with a nice crochet gift for Father’s Day, am I right?

I must say, I am not the one to make a crochet gift that is not going to be used and appreciated.

Silly or funny crochet items get laughed at for a day and then they just collect dust on the shelf, right?

Whereas there is nothing wrong with these gifts, I do not like to waste my time crocheting something that is going to last a day.

That is why, I have put together a collection of Father’s Day crochet gifts that are modern, wearable and hopefully, will get lots of use.

Explorer’s Mittens

If you are stuck for gift ideas, this men’s mittens crochet pattern is here to save the day. Make these quick crochet mittens for men in no time!

I have used two different colours for these men’s crochet mittens. This makes it a great pattern where you can combine the recipient’s favourite colours.

If they are a football fan, you can also use their favourite club’s colours.

The interlocking crochet technique creates a very stretchy fabric width and lengthways. So it is very forgiving when it comes to slight differences in sizes.

The mittens pattern is one size fits all. However, it includes suggestions on how to adjust for bigger or smaller sizes.
