As a blogger, I spend a lot of time on social media. As such, I have seen my share of memes. One meme that floats around a lot is that one that says, “Just because you can crochet it, doesn't mean you should”. The picture is of some gold crochet shorts on a man. It is absolutely funny, but it got me thinking, “Where are all the good men's crocheting patterns out there?”
I did a search and found 12 Free Crochet Patterns for Men that are amazing and don't involve anything he would be embarrassed to sport. So, if you are looking for some free crochet patterns for men to make something for the guy in your life, here's a great list to get you started.
