We just love this classic cardigan from Lion Brand. The traditional cabled design, wooden buttons, and long length are perfect for any man in your life. Knitted up in pieces and seamed up, this deep V-neck cardigan is also perfect to steal back; it’s the greatest ”boyfriend sweater” you’ll ever snuggle into! This pattern uses Lion Brand Wool Ease in the shade Natural Heather (098); we also love Oxford Grey (152) – click on the image below to view the huge selection of available shades.
Available in 4 sizes, from extra small to large, these simple socks are a great gift for any dad. This pattern calls for short row shaping and a heel flap, as well as using a simple and stitch pattern in the ribbing on the cuff. For this pattern, we love Austermann Step 6 sport weight yarn, a premiere sock yarn that’s built to last through anything a foot could throw at it. We love Krokodil (614) and Bergsee (619), as seen here. To see the rest of this designers awesome patterns, click here.
We love the classic aran, fishermen style of this cabled pullover sweater. Every man looks good in this style of sweater, no matter the age or build. Knitted in pieces and seamed up, this sweater is designed to fit those with a chest measurement of 36 – 52 inches around, and uses between 7 and 11 balls of Berroco Comfort, depending on the size. This sweater features the shade Hummus (9720), but we also love Adirondack (9752) for this classic cabled design.
Even though Father’s Day takes place in the summer, our friends down under are heading into winter – not to mention that hats are always beloved by dads young and old, no matter the season. This pattern is even suitable for beginners, or as a quick knit for a more experienced knitter. For this snuggly hat, we love Adriafil Duo Comfort, a delicious blend of wool and cotton that’s perfect for winter wear. To make this hat as shown, you will need one ball each of Red (72) and Kaki (74); click on the image below to view all available shades.
