Trying to think of something special to make for THAT guy? We have a few suggestions for you.
"How to make the Foundation Single Crochet stitch"
"Woven Cables Pattern Stitch"
And the ever popular…
"Why is my crochet work wavy at the edges?"
But the search terms where we've recently seen a BIG boost are…
"Men's knit sweater designs"
"Crochet patterns for men"
Generally, it seems like y'all are thinking a lot about what to make for the men in your lives lately (and, yes, we see that some of those men are YOU). Well… we just happen to have some suggestions for you!
Being men ourselves, we have very specific thoughts about designing for men and we believe this is what makes our men's patterns so popular. If you want to know more about our thought process behind our menwear designs, check out our post Crazy 'Bout A Sharp Dressed Man – Designing menswear men WILL wear. We give you a little insight into how we design our men's patterns and the details we use in our designs that make them perfect for a guy's body.
Now… about those suggestions… What to make for THAT guy. Here ya go:
Slouchy Hat & Boyfriend Beanie from our book Heady Affairs
We have over two dozen of these types of crochet hats in our entryway closet. No kidding… When I see a color (or colors) I like, I grab a hook and Stitch On! We've handed these out to friends, family, and strangers alike and I still keep making them.
They are fun and quick projects that both men and women like to wear and they are both easily customizable by working a round to two extra/less for larger or smaller heads or for a less or more slouchy fit. Again, school colors, team colors, favorite colors, ALL THE COLORS! You'll see… it's hard to stop…
