Crochet a Father's Day

I certainly can’t speak for anyone else, but Father’s Day gifts were always a problem for me. My two siblings and I did the best we could, but I’m sure my father inwardly groaned at some of the presents we gave him! Anyway, I decided to check out what wonderful crochet gifts the creative people on Pinterest (and others around the net) might be suggesting for our hard-working dads.

A sports-themed afghan could be perfect for many fathers! Manly Sports Lapghan by Crystal Porter from; pattern found at

And what better to go with sports but a beer bottle cozy? A free pattern from Evermine Occasions –

So comfy Modern Men’s Loafers by Lisa van Klaveren. Pattern available at

For the periodic-table-inclined/“nerd” fathers, Megan of Left in Knots designed this clever “Dad, 24/7 365 days a year” tribute – This could also be cute done with crocheted versions of Scrabble letters.

And let’s not forget the golfers out there! Beautiful club covers by Sarah of Repeat Crafter Me –

Every coffee-lovin’ man deserves a great cozy, and Sharon of Table Top Jewels has a very nice variety available in her shop – I could imagine other appliques to personalize the cozy even more (tool, fish, gardener, computer, etc).

And now for the Star Wars fans (you know who you are!) – their very own adult sized Darth Vader crocheted mask! Pattern sold by My Little Chapina on Craftsy –

Last but not least, for the dad who has everything, the Viking or Dwarven Beard by Melissa Campbell – free pattern with link to helmet at

There was another crocheted item for dad that I decided not to list because I rather enjoy the “G” rating for my blog. Besides, that item would be much more appropriate for Mom to give Dad!
