Make it Funny

This Father’s Day weekend is also the same weekend as my son’s birthday. And both my son and his father are funny. In quite different ways, as my husband is a comedian and my son loves puns. His father does not like puns. Anyway, here is a little collection of funny patterns to make, most of them crochet patterns, but one funny little cross-stitch at the end.

While my husband (along with a lot of people, actually) is kind of afraid of clowns, the classic guy to make you laugh is a clown. If you’re trying to inoculate your children against clown fear, perhaps you can make them a clown from this Amigurumi Clown Crochet Pattern and they will associate clowns with happy toys. Otherwise, they can just avoid clowns altogether, like my family tries to do.

I love to find subtle funny things hiding places, like these Crochet Eyeball Headrest Covers. I think it would just delight me to sit 50 meters away from my car and watch people walk by to see their reactions when they notice these silly headrest covers.

Here’s a great father’s day-inspired crochet pattern you could probably whip up before the day was done. This Crochet Beer Mug Pattern would be a fun piece of decor for the den or the basement bar.

I made my son an oreo ice cream cake for his birthday this year, but he might have appreciated a cake made from this Amigurumi Birthday Cake Crochet Pattern. I don’t know if it would be worth it for him though. He is thirteen now and although I’m in no hurry for him to grow up beyond cute anthropomorphic cakes, I think he might not enjoy this for much longer than the initial reaction.

If you’d like to make your dog something to laugh at, you can dress him up like a bear if you make this Bear Headband for Dog Crochet Pattern. Ah? I’m all for making dogs look silly. Is it cruel? I don’t know, I don’t have a dog. But it doesn’t seem like they mind you laughing at them.

Of course for the cat loves in the bunch there’s the Crochet Cat Butt Coaster Crochet Pattern. 100% of sales proceeds for the month of June (2020) are going to the Black Lives Matter movement, which is awesome, so go grab one of these cute patterns today! My question is… do cat loves love cat butts? Like, as much as I think this is funny, I just don’t know anyone who is serving up their coffee on cat butt coasters…

This is probably more my style of cheeky decor: the Crochet Cactus Pillow Cover Pattern would make a fun piece of decor with a little nod to your favourite succulent, as well as some ’80s hip hop.

I guess it’s a familiar trope that marriage is like a ball and chain? It’s not something I’ve heard a lot recently, but if you are going to make the joke, you can accompany it with a prop made from this Prison Ball and Chain Crochet Pattern. It would make a great costume prop as well for a prisoner costume.

Here’s a fun little cheeky rattle pattern for ya. This Boobie Baby Rattle Crochet Pattern would be a fun little gift for new parents who don’t take themselves too seriously. Babies don’t care what their toys look like, but parents can find some humour in them.

Honestly, you’d be surprised how many penis-inspired crochet patterns there are. If you’re looking for that kind of thing, people seem to like this Penis Can Cozy. Looks a little cumbersome, but good for a laugh.

It is really funny what we find funny. Not sure if I’m going to go this far to make a cross-stitch like this Bathroom Rating Cross Stitch for my bathroom, but it is kind of hilarious to imagine a bathroom rating site. ratemybathroom.com?

I hope you enjoyed this collection of funny patterns to make. Enjoy the funny people in your life today and don’t take yourself too seriously in your making! Life’s too short to be grumpy about crafts! Grab a pattern and make one today or pin it for later!

Men’s Hat Patterns

A lot of knitters and crocheters are people who have men in their lives that they love to make things for. But many of us are attracted to fun pompoms, complicated stitch patterns, and slouchy hats that the dudes in our lives would just not be into. And I’m guilty of this, too. So if you’re looking for some simple, manly hat patterns, you’ve come to the right place. And most of these are crochet! I often lean towards knitting patterns when knitting for men because the fabric ends up being thinner, which is what Mr Evangelist prefers, so I know what a challenge it can be for crocheters to find a good men’s hat pattern. But there are plenty included here! Check them out and try one today!

Who says men’s hats have to be plain? This textured Arrowhead Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern is a great example of a manly hat pattern with a lovely stitch pattern. This pattern comes in 6 sizes, from baby to adult large, so you can make one for the whole family! Add a pompom if you like and it’s a stylish hat for anyone! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE ARROWHEAD BEANIE PATTERN.

And who says men and boys can’t wear a slouchy hat? Check out this lovely Portland Slouchy Hat and Cowl Set Crochet Pattern. It mimics a knit seed stitch and has a lovely slight slouch to it. It comes in 5 sizes from 6 months to adult, so again, you can make this set for anyone in the family! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE PORTLAND SLOUCHY HAT AND COWL SET CROCHET PATTERN.

If you’re a new crocheter, The Perfect Slouch and Ribbed Scarf Crochet Pattern Set might just be more your speed. This simple hat is perfect for a beginner as it’s an easy to follow pattern with plenty of helpful photos. It requires only basic crochet skills and materials and is worked seamlessly in the round. CLICK HERE FOR THE PERFECT SLOUCH AND RIBBED SCARF CROCHET PATTERN SET.

The Brighton Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern in 6 Sizes is another lovely crochet hat pattern that has a textured stitch pattern and is totally family-friendly! It has some optional add-ons such as flowers if that’s your thing (perfect for little girls) and also looks great with a faux fur pompom! CLICK HERE FOR THE BRIGHTON BEANIE CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

Who says men’s hat patterns have to be solid colours? The Big Bay Beanie Crochet Pattern is a great multi-coloured pattern worked up with chunky weight yarn in 5 colours and it’s simple enough for a beginner/advanced beginner. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but for just a few bucks you can grab an easy-to-read, printable pdf pattern: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BIG BAY BEANIE CROCHET PATTERN.

Simple hats like the Basic Knit Beanie for Men and Boys Knitting Pattern is the kind of pattern I usually make for Mr Evangelist. He’s already got a pretty big head, so he doesn’t want to add the bulk of a thick and chunky hat to it. Also, while he’s trying to stay warm, sometimes those chunky hats make him too hot. He’s already pretty hot (woot woot!) so we don’t want to overdo it. 😉 The decreases on this knit hat pattern make a lovely swirled crown that sits nice and flat on the head. It’s a great guide to learning decreases. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BASIC KNIT BEANIE FOR MEN AND BOYS KNITTING PATTERN.

For a slightly textured ribbed crochet hat pattern, check out this Men’s Slouchy Knit-Look Crochet Hat Pattern. I love that it’s not super slouchy. That’s just the right amount of slouch for the men that I know. This is an intermediate crochet pattern in two adult sizes. It uses worsted weight yarn, so it’s a lovely project for some of that worsted weight yarn you have in your stash. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE MEN’S SLOUCHY KNIT-LOOK CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Fisherman’s Cap Crochet Beanie Pattern is such a classic pattern that you can’t miss out on it. It’s a perfect beginner pattern made with basic stitches, so if you’re just learning, this pattern is for you! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FISHERMAN’S CAP CROCHET BEANIE PATTERN.

The Ribbed Wonder Crochet Hat Pattern is another super easy beginner crochet pattern for a classic simple crochet hat using chunky weight yarn. This works up quickly to make a timeless hat that the man in your life will love. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but I love to have a pattern I can print out, take with me and mark up as I go. For just a few bucks, it’s absolutely worth it! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE RIBBED WONDER CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Ripple Hat Crochet Pattern is simple to follow and comes in 4 sizes using under 100 grams of worsted weight yarn and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook. The lovely texture on this pattern makes a great unisex pattern that men, boys and women and girls will all love! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE RIPPLE HAT CROCHET PATTERN.

This Reversible Knit-Look Beanie Crochet Pattern in 6 Sizes is another hat that Mr Evangelist would be a fan of. So if you’re looking for something streamlined and simple for the man in your life, that looks store-bought, this crochet pattern is for you! I love the look of it and it really does look knit, don’t you think!? And it’s completely reversible! How cool is that?! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE REVERSIBLE KNIT-LOOK BEANIE PATTERN.

Maybe you’re not looking for a beanie pattern, but something with a little more flair? Or perhaps for a costume? The Fedora Crochet Pattern in 9 sizes is a super fun summer hat pattern comes in 9 sizes so you could make one for a newborn (!HOW CUTE WOULD THAT BE?!) and your grandpa. So fun. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FEDORA CROCHET PATTERN.

Or maybe you need a Newsies kind of a hat? The Belmont Scally Cap Newsboys Hat Pattern is a classic 1920’s hat pattern so that you can join in with the Peaky Blinders style. It also includes a bonus size for an 18″ doll! How cute would that be?! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BELMONT SCALLY CAP NEWSBOYS HAT PATTERN.

Of course, if you’re really looking for a costume hat or a fun pattern for a little boy, this Knight Helmet Crochet Hat Pattern is a ton of fun. For those of us in cold climates, Halloween can be unpredictable, but it is usually chilly here, so a warm hat to wear out trick-or-treating is a great idea. And many little boys like to play pretend year-round, so a fun hat like this knight helmet can be made for Halloween and worn all winter long! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KNIGHT HELMET CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Lael Viking Hat Crochet Pattern is another great hat that can be used as a costume or simply a fun hat to keep your little one’s head warm. It comes in three sizes, but it makes a stretchy hat that can be worn by multiple head sizes. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE LAEL VIKING HAT CROCHET PATTERN.

I know I usually focus on knit and crochet patterns in this blog, but I came across this Leather Bowler Hat Pattern and Video Tutorial and thought it was so cool that I had to share it with you all.
