Can you believe how close the holidays are already?! Time to give thanks for quick projects! Crafting for the men in our lives can be tough, and investing the time and money to make a sweater isn't always realistic. So today I've gathered together 10 free patterns that make great crochet gifts for men - and depending on the yarn you use, they can all by made with just one skein!
One Skein Crochet Gifts for Men
- Men's Crochet Hat Pattern on JJ Crochet's Blog: (90-100 yds) This quick beanie is dressed up with a ribbed style brim, great for guy who prefer their style simple.
- Basic Crochet Ribbed Hat by Rebekah Thompson: (50-200 yds) For all the fishermen, seafarers, or their land-lubbing counterparts. A true classic!
