14 Free Crochet Patterns for Men

Hubby’s Home Beanie

This beanie makes such a statement! Even better, this pattern is completely beginner friendly. Don’t you love that? The amazing self-striping yarn does all of the heavy lifting!

Blue Jean Rhapsody Cast Iron Cook Set

This gorgeous set of pot holders and skillet handle covers would make a superb camping set! Kirsten is known more for her elegant and feminine lace designs, but MAN (pun intended!) does she make a great set for Dads, too!

Studio Stripe Scarf

This classic crocheted scarf makes such an elegant gift for guys. The stitch texture is interesting without being too frilly, and the color work adds just enough interest. Perfection!

Football Earflap Hat

Because statistically speaking, your guy probably loves football!

Denver Football Fan Can Coozy

Okay, ignoring the fact that this is written for Denver (Sorry Sara, I know you’re from Colorado, but my husband is a DIEHARD Chicago Fan!), this set of can coozies makes an excellent gift for a football fan! Or hey, we’re all inclusive, you can leave off the applique and use your favorite baseball or hockey team colors, too!

Outdoor Picnic Blanket

If your Dad loves being outdoors,

Brain Waves Beanie

This awesome beanie is available as a free Ravelry download! You can add favorite sports team colors, or just his favorite shades of blue.

Jute Force Canteen Carrier

This robust canteen sling is made from jute, so it’s sure to be durable enough to keep pace with your intrepid hiker! Just make sure you make one for yourself to match if you plan to go along!

Paw Warmers Slippers

These cozy slippers are perfect for lounging, no frills required! Perfect for kicking your feet up, like perhaps on a…

Stash Busting Monster Pouf

Do you know a dad that doesn’t like to kick back and relax with his feet propped up? I’m beginning to think it’s some sort of weird male territory display or something. But hey- when you have such a cool stash busting project, why not let him?

Men’s Cabled Golf Hat

Does your man love golf? Or just have a timeless sense of  style? This gorgeous hat would make a great gift!

Dad’s Grilling Mitt

If your special Dad loves grilling, this awesome crocheted grilling mitt might be just the thing for him!

Jellybean Place Mat

This quick and easy project would make an excellent stash buster. Most dads I know LOVE grilling out and eating outdoors almost as much (but maybe slightly more than) their kids. These place mats would certainly dress up your patio table (or dinner table, if you don’t have a screen porch, amirite?) for those wonderful summer barbecue nights with Dad.

Work or Play Beanie

This classic beanie is light enough for summer gifting, but would be useful year round! (Does your guy refuse to admit he gets cold, too? Or is that just mine?) In any case, this beanie makes a perfect gift!

Bonus: Here’s the best crochet pattern for men I have available on my site!

Paracord Camera

Find the free Paracord Crohet Camera Strap pattern at!

If your special guy loves outdoor photography, this rugged paracord camera strap would make a great gift! Besides, even if he won’t wear anything else you crochet for him, you can at least guarantee he’ll have to wear something that gets strapped to his $500+ hobby machine!
