Crochet patterns for men? HELP!

Posted by on Dec. 3, 2013 at 8:09 AM

So every year we do a bad santa at my MIL's for Christmas. We are very short on money right now so my mil and hubby suggested I crochet something for it, since I don't have the money to buy things. The way we do it, each person brings a gift. So I need to crothet something that would be appropriate for females and something else for the males. None of the men in the family wear beanies. They wear baseball caps and baseball caps only. They also don't use scarves or mittens and I don't have the time to crochet an afghan. 

Four of the guys are into video games, four of them are into sports, and I think there's only two that are into fishing. There are five adult men in the family and I can not find any patterns that would be good. All the patterns I am finding are for hats, scarves, mittens and that type of stuff. Does anyone have any ideas or a pattern that would work? 

Thanks in advance ladies!

Laptop/kindle/tablet/cell case, bottle/mug/can cozy (maybe a set in different colors so it's easy to tell drinks apart, lol), crocheted football/baseball/basketball (safer for tossing indoors!), bookmarks, fingerless gloves for playing video games, slippers...

 Since 4 of th 5 like sports, then your best bet sounds like doing the balls like Brieshon suggested. You could even do a set of different kinds of balls.

Quoting Brieshon: Laptop/kindle/tablet/cell case, bottle/mug/can cozy (maybe a set in different colors so it's easy to tell drinks apart, lol), crocheted football/baseball/basketball (safer for tossing indoors!), bookmarks, fingerless gloves for playing video games, slippers...

I didn't even think of the balls. Do you know where I can find some good free patterns for them?

I'd do a mug cozy with a baseball team theme
