Knits for Dad

Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 15th and if you’ve no idea what to get Dad this year, don’t worry, you can knit him something special instead.

If your Dad is difficult to buy for and already has a stockpile of ties, a knitted gift is the perfect solution. It is personal, unique and 100% guaranteed that Dad won’t already have it.

I’ve trawled the Ravelry website to find some fantastic free patterns suitable for knitters of a variety of skill levels – from beginners to the most experienced.

The best thing about Dad knits is that the pattern often calls for an Aran weight yarn – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in Erika Knight’s Vintage Wool in chocolate or iced gem – perfect shades for Dads everywhere and available at Baa Baa Brighouse!

Or why not check out the West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 Ply – ideal for some of the smaller items such as the mobile phone cover, mug cosy or glasses case? With the phenomenal yardage of this yarn, you could make several items cost effectively. It is available at Baa Baa Brighouse in Spice Rack shades that Dads will love.

Check out our top 10 list of free patterns for Dad knits this Father’s Day!
