For Christmas last year I shopped a lot of craft sales and bought some really adorable handmade items for the kids. While I don’t crochet there are lots of talented people out there who do, and wow you made some beautiful things. I have compiled a list of FREE crochet patterns for boys. So if you are feeling crafty today make sure you check them out as there is everything from clothing to dolls. You don’t need to worry about all the patterns being for cute girly things, although there are lots of them out there this post is all for the boys! Prefer knitting over crocheting? Then hop on over to the huge list of free knitting patterns for boys. Have fun making some of these projects for your own kids or as DIY gift ideas.
