Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and let’s face it: it’s hard to figure out what to get for your guy. All of the advertisements and store displays this time of year are filled with jewelry, roses, pinks, and chocolates, which might be inspiring if you’re shopping for a lady but are a little less helpful when you’re shopping for a man. There’s almost no choice but to DIY your guy’s gift for this holiday! (Unless he likes roses and jewelry, in which case, have at it!).
I’ve gathered up our 7 best crochet patterns for men to give you some ideas. These easy crochet patterns, from golf gear to outerwear, are sure to be a hit with any man in your life—and the fact that they’re handmade make them way more thoughtful than just a card from the store. Check them out below, and remember: even if it comes in a heart-shaped box, I’m sure few men would turn up their noses at getting some chocolate, too. (And if you DO want to crochet him a rose, here’s an easy tutorial!)
