Let's crochet together!

As the proud mama to a wonderful son, and favorite (okay, only) auntie to 3 fun nephews, I’m constantly on the lookout for awesome crochet patterns for my boys. For some reason, though, I’ve found boy patterns fewer, and further between. I know that most of you have probably noticed this as well!

Lucky for you, my second hobby just so happens to be hoarding crochet patterns! I’ve combed the web, and am happy to share these treasures I’ve brought back with all of you.

Free Crochet Patterns for Boys

Bear Hugs Baby Beanie Kirsten Holloway Designs


Checkers, and bobbles, and ribbing! Oh, my! Kirsten of KHD filled this baby hat to the brim with fabulous texture, then topped it off with bear ears for the most adorable little bear hat I have ever seen.

Hickory Bark BeanieElk Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs

Yes, it’s an adult size, but my family all have big heads! This beanie combines all my favorite things for crochet gifts: bulky yarn, a bigger K hook, and awesome variegated yarn. The post stitches add some extra warmth, as well.  PS- The men in your life will thank you for browsing through the Hat Patterns category over at Elk Studio. Kathy creates so many amazing hats for guys, and you might even find a pretty project for yourself, while you’re at it.

Hubby’s Home Beanie – Nicki’s Homemade Crafts

Bulky yarn and just a smidge of texture- what more could a guy ask for? This hat is sized for teen/adult small, and the pattern makes a great learning project for a beginner or a seasoned crocheter who just wants to relax.

Sleigh Ride Mittens – Fiber Flux

These cozy, bulky mittens are available for Free on Fiber Flux, including a video tutorial for the tricky bit.

It’s All About the Texture Hat – Oombawka Design Crochet

The ombre yarn from Red Heart used here really adds an extra dimension to this phenomenal pattern! The texture looks absolutely dreamy, but it’s simple enough for a determined beginner. As an added bonus, this pattern is fully sized from Newborn to Adult Large!

Pizza Hat! – Maria’s Blue Crayon

Who doesn’t love pizza? And who doesn’t love long tail hats? Keep your toddler boy’s head ooey-gooey warm with this deliciously punny hat. This pepperoni pizza is simple enough that a even a beginner crocheter could cook this recipe… er, pattern up!

Snowy Day Hat – Pattern Paradise

I get so excited when free patterns offer multiple sizes. This cute striped hat would make an adorable Father/Son set in their favorite sports team’s colors!

Bridgeport Scarf – Stitches N Scraps

This scarf has just the right amount of interest. Simple stripes add a pop of color, and the herringbone half double (with a handy tutorial) gives excellent drape when paired with a lightweight yarn.

Ethan Baby Beanie – Moogly Blog

Simple, easy, and fun make the best patterns. This hat ticks off all those and more! Sized for baby, toddler and child, this cute hat would be an adorable baby gift paired with the matching afghan linked on the blog.

Oh Boy Oh Boy the Owl – Cre8tion Crochet

And other times, going all out for a fun animal hat is just what your little boy would love! Just be sure not to click over to the rest of her patterns on Ravelry unless you’ve got time to crochet something for yourself as well!


Paid Patterns

Pascala Mini Slouch – A Crocheted Simplicity

For those who love the knit look, this is the pattern for you! I had to triple check the listing to be sure I hadn’t snagged one of my knit patterns. This fun side-to-side hat would complete the look for nearly any guy’s style.

The One Cowl – ACCROchet

This subtle checkerboard texture adds just the right touch to this quick and easy neckwarmer pattern. There’s only one downfall- you’ll probably want one for yourself as well!

Football Fan Slippers – Snappy Tots

All the boys in my life are huge football fans! These soft, warm slippers would be perfect for any number of boys or men on my Christmas Crochet list.

Truck Hauler Hat – Melody’s Makings

This adorable graph beanie would be adorable for a little boy! Finally, a hat a little boy will WANT to wear.
