Men Free Crochet Patterns for Gifts

When you are looking to crochet a Christmas, birthday, Fathers’ Day or just a loving gift for a man, it can prove difficult to find a suitable pattern. It is true that there are far fewer crochet patterns for men than for other people. However, there are suitable free men’s patterns one merely has to find them among all the other free crochet patterns on the internet.

Crochet Pattern Central (CPC) is a large easily navigable crochet pattern directory, which has a section for men’s clothing patterns. Here you will find links to free patterns for sweaters, pullovers, cardigans, vests ties, hats and scarves. The selection covers everything from a traditional Fishermen’s Sweater, to men’s fingerless gloves, and the Burly Tweed Man’s Scarf. CPC has some great men’s crochet patterns.

Barb’s Free Crochet gathers links to various free men’s crochet patterns on her site. There are links to clothing, accessories, Afghan squares, and other items, which men would find useful.

In the right colours, The Broken Blocks Scarf would make a super gift for chilly men. Moogly Blog lists 10 gift ideas and 15 free patterns for men’s gifts. Although she designates her page as Father’s Day Gifts, these gifts are suitable for any occasion and men whether they are fathers or not. Crochet ear warmers, hats and scarves would be great for men, who do outdoor jobs or commuters, who have to stand on draughty railway stations or at bus stops, on their journey to work. Slippers always make an excellent gift for anyone.

Many young men wear colourful Rasta hats, some for religious reasons and others as a fashion statement. There are various free patterns for Rasta hats available on the internet. The Daily Crocheter has both a Rasta Hat and a Tam on her page headed Adult hats, included in the section are links to many more men’s hats and caps.

Ravelry has the diamond lapghan and pillow, slippers, and various other items. The 'Anatomy of a Loafer' is a manly enough slipper for any man. There are brilliant hats including the Guy’s Cap and Scarf set. The Adventuring Sage Cable Vest would be an interesting project. Lidsville is a cap to rival any store bought cap. You do have to give an e mail address to register at Ravelry, but it is well worth doing so as membership gives you access not only to free patterns but also to a lively and vibrant crochet community.

Crochet does not always lend itself to manly items. However, there are ways to crochet items that would suit the most masculine man. Although, crochet patterns for men’s items are rarer, than those for other people, free patterns for men’s clothing and other items exist. Among these, you will find perfect patterns to make special gifts for the men in your life.
