The Outdoor Worshipper
Everyone is guilty of spending a bit too much time outside when the weather is warm, but your dad takes it to the extreme! Spending his Sundays planting, mowing the lawn or growing veg at the allotment – this dad will be happiest in his garden and our patterns will hopefully bring him a bit more joy indoors!
While your dad is digging and making the outdoors beautiful, he might get a little lonely – so why not make him a mate? Jerry the gnome will be quite content watching your dad and he might even lend a hand!
It must be difficult carrying all your gardening tools around all day, make him this handy apron and everything will be easy to access throughout his outdoor duties. You can change the colours to fit his favourites too!
I’m sure Dad would be hugely grateful if you took him out a cup of tea while he’s gardening, but I’m sure he’d be even happier if you made him a pot of tea, decorated in this wonderfully creative allotment cosy!
If your dad enjoys the outdoors, I’m sure he’s a camping holiday fan. Why not take the stress out of his next trip and crochet him up some new gear? He’ll be forever thankful!
Whether he’s watching it, playing it or going ON about it, sporty Dad lives for it - and yes we know you’re thinking – how on earth will I find something suitable that I can make? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Do you think he’s a real champion? Craft him this crocheted medal and tell him so! He’ll be touched at the time you’ve taken and even more honoured at being awarded.
Food and drink are this dad’s favourite things, apart from you of course! Get your crafting kit out and get going on these makes, they’re good enough to eat!
Keep Dad’s bottle chilled with our knitted wine cooler! If you’re feeling generous you could even present it with a bottle of his favourite tipple.
He’ll love these tasty treats, even if they can’t be eaten – they’re great centre pieces for your table and if you’re feeling extra cruel you could put them in a Krispy Kreme box and taunt him into thinking they’re the real thing!
If Dad is a beer drinker, (or even if he isn’t) these are the perfect presents – keeping his tipple of choice cool but stylish with these cute crocheted holders. As with the wine, if you’re feeling generous, give them already protecting a few tins and he’ll appreciate them even more.
