I have often wondered how many Men do Crochet! I do know that I had a houseful of boys that grew into Men and not one of them Crochet now! When they were young and when I was crocheting they wanted to learn how. I then taught them how to crochet and they actually made friendship bracelets but that was as far as they took the crocheting. Now they say hey Mom I like this could you make it for me!! 🙂
I have done some research on Men Crocheting and it seems that there a few of them that enjoy this craft. The Crochet Dude is known in crochet circles and here is another guy that blogs from my home state WI about crocheting among other things Real Men Crochet and other things.
When searching for patterns for Men I find mainly hats, afghans, scarves, some sweaters and vests. I have 3 boys and was looking for some sweater patterns to make for gifts. In my research I was just not coming across anything that I knew they would wear. This is why I decided to start designing items for Men. I have always loved to make things for my family and give them as gifts but there is only so many hats and afghans that they can use!
I love to use Pinterest for inspiration on Men’s Fashion. There are so many ideas that you can use for inspiration and for patterns. I was trying to see how many different things that I could find for Men that have been Crocheted.
This Vest I thought was unique and it is made by combining crocheting and material. Check out my Crochet for Men and Boys on Pinterest to see more! Crochet for Men & Boys on Pinterest
These are a few of the items I have created for my boys and grandson. My middle son is pictured wearing the hooded sweater and has helped me quite a bit with items to create. He will see something and he will say “Mom” could you by chance be able to make this? This is where the idea came from for the Fedora style hat and the Tie.
