We asked some of our favourite designers what's on their hooks for the man in their life this father's day.
Crochet is perfect for making quick and easy gifts for special days. I love making coasters which are great for the desk. Ever popular is my Foxy Valentine pattern. This little fox would also be perfect for a Father's day message. Make little amigurumi creatures which your Dad would like and they can be used to deliver a little message of love to your Dad.
I still have Vicki Brown's "Henri Scarf" pattern (right) from issue 37 sitting in my project bag, and my husband is still waiting for me to buy yarn – maybe this is the year he'll finally get the new scarf I promised!
I will be making my water bottle holder in “man” colours – greys, blues & white (without the flower) so that he can keep hydrated on his long dog walks
Inside Crochet Team's Favourites:
We adore Gwen Duhart's Tattoo Beanies (right). Take a look at Gwen's Etsy shop Adorably Hooked here: www.etsy.com/shop/AdorablyHooked
Socks have long been a staple gift 'for him' but there's nothing typical about these designs by Rohn Strong.
Left to right: Dowding Socks (issue 34), Ribbed Socks (issue 46), Checkerboard Socks (issue 47) and Star Toe Socks (issue 50)
Steel Tie by Simone Francis (issue 39). Inspired by catwalk trends, this tie uses tiny granny squares crocheted in a silky look yarn to give a fresh but retro ‘mod’ look.
Barbara Summers's Echo Hat (issue 35). The chunky texture stitch in this hat has echoes of art deco design,
adding extra warmth and elasticity to the fabric. It’s perfect for
winter walks in the wookds or along a bracing seafront.
We think Emma Varnam's Camper Van should be on everyone's list, don't you? Personalise it with his favourite colours and unique numberplate.
