Knits for Father’s Day
Posted on June 08 2017
June is the start of summer and also the place on the calendar for many holidays. Father’s Day is one of these – and you’ll want to give your dad a great homemade gift. You could knit something, but you want to make something besides the traditional sweater. We’ve got some fabulous projects that Dad will love – and you won’t have to worry about getting the sleeves even!
Knit Golf Club Covers
Does Dad spend weekends on the golf course? With these knit golf club covers, he’ll think of you with every drive, chip and putt. Who knows, you just might bring him some luck and take a few strokes off his golf game! Check out our Hagrid yarns and choose the colors that best suit your dad.
If your pop’s a fan of Star Wars, he’ll love these Storm Trooper club covers. And who knows, if he attacks the ball like a Storm Trooper, maybe his game will improve!
It can’t always be take your kid to work day, but when you make this cool seed stitch tie for your dad, you’ll be there with him in spirit. It works up quickly, so make him more than one in several different colors to coordinate with his shirts and suit coats. The variety of solid and self-striping Griffon yarns we offer are great for this pattern!
#1 Dad Cloth
No, we don’t expect Dad to do dishes on Father’s Day, but this cloth has other uses too. For Father’s Day, knit this up with your favorite cotton yarn and give it to him with a beer, or whatever his favorite drink is. The cloth can double as a coaster and drink grip to keep his hands dry while the brew sweats.
Many dads enjoy outdoor sports. The only problem with that is checking the time. Rolling up their sleeves to check the time and be sure they don’t miss getting home in time to see you makes their wrists super cold. Solve that problem with this knit watchband. It works up quickly and you can attach any watch face to it. It looks great with our Lumos fingering weight yarns.
Your dad will be amazed at your skill and love getting a handmade gift from you this Father’s Day.
