Multicolored Crochet Scarf
Do you have a dad who is a Dr. Who fan or just likes being colorful? This Dr. Who-inspired scarf is perfect for such a man. The combo of moss stitches and soft yarn makes for a scarf that looks great even if done in one color. It’s a free pattern found here on Stitching Together.
Hyland Men’s Hat
The Hyland Crochet Hat Pattern, by Rebecca Langford of Yarn + Chai, is a great basic hat with the perfect amount of slouch. The colors and yarn she used for her sample are dad-friendly and remove the need to worry about picking out the perfect colors. It’s worked top-down and there are instructions for toddlers all the way to adult large sizes.
Milestone Journey Hat
The story behind this hat design is just as beautiful as the hat itself and you’ll want to spend some time reading about it on Wilmade. Has your dad gone through some significant life changes? This hat could be the perfect gift to commemorate that even if you don’t include the additional embellishments.

Daddy’s Simple Easy Mittens
This is another great crochet pattern by Rhondda Mol of Oombawka Design Crochet. Cozy mittens are a great gift for dad and this pair is great for people with medium to large hands. You could easily make him a couple of pairs so he can keep them in his car and coat.
