Father's Day Gifts to Crochet

By

Perhaps you would like to make a gift for dad. If so, you're invited to consider the following ideas:

Checkered Pouch Pattern

The best gift we ever got for my father-in-law was a high-quality pen. As far as I know, he still has it (and it's now somewhere around 15 years later. That's kind of miraculous, don't you think?)

So here's another idea we thought of along those lines: Why not give Dad a pen pouch?

The pouch linked here is one possibility. When my husband first looked at it, he thought it would make a good golf pouch. I wouldn't know; I don't golf, so I'll let you be the judge of that. Personally, I'll be putting pens and pencils in mine.

Either way, I'm thinking this pouch is a good possibility for Father's Day gift-giving.

Dad needs to stay hydrated, so why not help him do it in style? These water bottle cozies, plus maybe a couple of water bottles, would be a great gift for him.

If dad enjoys liquor or wine, you could present him with a bottle placed lovingly inside a crocheted bottle cover.

French Press Coffee Cozy

Is dad a coffee drinker? if so, a French press plus a matching hand-crocheted cozy would make a great gift set for him.

Dad's Char -N- Grill Potholder

This potholder says "Dad's Char -N- Grill," written in cross stitch; it's fair game for giving as a gag gift, but only if the dad on the receiving end can't manage to barbecue without burning the food.

If dad is a professional chef, or at least an excellent cook, obviously that doesn't apply to him. In that case, or in case you'd like to be kinder to him, you could change the text to "Dad's Bar -N- Grill" as suggested in the pattern.

The free potholder pattern is available right here on our website; the free cross stitch chart is available at our sister site, About cross stitch. The cross stitch pattern was designed by Connie Barwick.
