Father’s Day is coming up, and we’re all searching for the perfect gift for Dad. If your dad is like mine, he’s notoriously hard to shop for. That’s just another reason handmade gifts are the way to go! I have a few knit and crochet patterns in mind for this Father’s Day, but I haven’t quite decided which one to make. Take a look, and let me know which one is your favorite!
I LOVE crocheted cables, and my dad loves simple and comfortable clothes, so the Caddy Cables Vest would make a great gift. My dad’s not a golfer, but he could wear this casual and handsome piece to the movies, out to a restaurant, or just about anywhere. Take your dad out for a nice meal, and he’ll have just the occasion to wear it!
For an even more casual look, the Amber Ale Vest would be a cool layer for Dad to wear when he’s hanging out with friends or family. The hood is a fun detail, and the quarter-zip style makes it classic and comfortable.
If your dad works in an office, a sweater is a fabulous go-to gift. The Harrison Sweater features an easy basketweave crochet pattern and button closure, making it a timeless cardigan he’ll wear for years.
For a knit cardigan, you can’t beat the Nottingham Sweater! Classic cables and a zipped front make this piece an awesome choice for dads of all ages. I like how there’s just a hint of a contrasting color along the edges.
The Harbor Vest is a handsome Tunisian crochet pattern that would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift. The subtle diamond stitch pattern gives it a hint of style without overpowering the simple design many dads love.
Finally, if your dad is into color, the Fair Isle on the Fairway Vest will be the perfect gift! Choose your dad’s favorite colors for a thoughtful personalized present he’ll always treasure. As a bonus, we also have a FREE pattern for matching golf club covers!
Which one of the patterns above is your favorite? We’d love to hear what you’re making Dad for Father’s Day this year, so leave us a comment below and let us know!
