What to Crochet for Teenage Guys

Okay, let’s be honest here. Teenage guys might just be the hardest people to crochet for.

There have been times where I thought it was hard to crochet for my dad. Or my boyfriend.

But then, I started looking for patterns for my teenage brother. And let’s just say that took HARD to a whole ‘nother level!

There aren’t a lot of crochet patterns out there for teenage guys, but there are some. I searched long and hard to find this collection of patterns!

All my ideas can be found below. Whether it is your brother, son, nephew, etc. hopefully there is something perfect here! Click on any item in the list to see the featured pattern. (Or, check out an ultimate list of crochet gifts for men!)

Choosing the Perfect Crochet Gift for your Teen

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I have included both funny and practical gifts in this list. You will really have to know your teen well in order to pick the perfect gift! Younger teens may really love the star wars crochet or poop emoji pillow. Whereas, older teens may roll their eyes at a gift like that. They may appreciate the messenger bag or AirPods case more.

My point is, keep the unique personality of your teen in mind as you look at all these patterns.

10. Crochet Baseball

One last pattern I just had to include was this crochet baseball by Jen Hayes Creations! I love how realistic it looks. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn with a small crochet hook (size E) so that your stitches are tight and no stuffing leaks out.
