Availability: Ready to download

Whether you’re a man or a woman, chances are you’re holding this book because you want to find the right knitting project for a man in your life—be it your husband, your dad, or your best friend. But men are difficult to buy clothes for, not to mention knit for. They don’t want anything fussy, or too trendy. The color palette needs to be classic and the yarn should be soft Whether you’re a man or a woman, chances are you’re holding this book because you want to find the right knitting project for a man in your life—be it your husband, your dad, or your best friend. But men are difficult to buy clothes for, not to mention knit for. They don’t want anything fussy, or too trendy. The color palette needs to be classic and the yarn should be soft but§ durable. They want something comfortable they can wear for years. So join knitter extraordinaire Erika Knight as she takes on the knitwear that men love. Knight started her career designing menswear and over the decades she’s completely figured out their clothes-buying mentality. In Men’s Knits, she applies that expertise to come up with 20 projects that guys are sure to wear. Using classic shapes, a mostly neutral palette (but with some teals and chocolates thrown in for the slightly flashier guy), and natural yarns like wool, bamboo, and hemp, every piece is distinctive and stylish. For men young and old, these designs will become the sweaters, vests, scarves, and hats they reach for again and again. The zipper cardigan is perfect for both reading the paper on Sunday morning and a casual dinner with friends on Sunday night. The herringbone sweater will impress his future boss at his next interview, or his future in-laws at their next family gathering. The argyle vest works on every man, whether he’s buttoned-up or laid back. Together, they’ll be the new classics you’ll want to knit, give, and maybe even borrow for years to come. Whether it’s a textured vest or a hand-dyed sweater, you’re sure to find something that’ll look good on the man in your life–and not end up forever buried in his bureau.

    I don't know if "currently reading" is the right term. More like ogling. This, my friends, is knit porn. Those "unconventionally" attractive men photographed in beautiful light, those scarves and sweaters! That hat. I don't know if "currently reading" is the right term. More like ogling.

    What a find! A like-new copy, on sale for $2 at a downtown thrift store. I'd been wanting just such a book to add to my knitting library -- because even though, so far, I've only knitted socks and hats for myself and for friends and family, I dream of eventually being able to make sweaters for myself and for Jonathan.

    BOTTOM LINE: Superb writing/information, good patterns, nice/careful instructions, pretty photos of handsome men. Four stars, because while I found a couple of very nice/interesting patterns, they used really large needles, which I hate, so none of the designs were usable for me. ymmv. I generally very much enjoy Erika Knight's designs, and this was no exception. Nice, strong sweaters and accessories (manly??!) using large or enormous needles, nice tweedy/neutral colors, and classic designs made BOTTOM LINE: Superb writing/information, good patterns, nice/careful instructions, pretty photos of handsome men.

I generally very much enjoy Erika Knight's designs, and this was no exception. Nice, strong sweaters and accessories (manly??!) using large or enormous needles, nice tweedy/neutral colors, and classic designs made this entertaining to read. Oh, and did I mention the very pretty faces??? Many of them were of the "slouchy pretty boy" type that's of no intrest to me, but there were all sorts of faces and personal styles represented here, rather good to look at, albeit with a touch more of the "chichi" than I generally like, though. But that's a small quibble. The arrangement and production of this book is simply superb - thoughtful, extremely accessible information (and lots of it) written clearly and comprehensibly. Another good one from Ms. Knight; I look forward to more.

    There are so few modern knitting patterns for men that this book is a stand out. The projects are simple and streamlined but still fashion forward. It's nice that among the eye candy models there are also some men of more typical proportions as well. My dh, who is ridiculously picky, liked several projects and specifically requested two of the sweaters. There are so few modern knitting patterns for men that this book is a stand out.

    Very attractive and hip menswear to knit. Great photos, and the multiculti models are appreciated! But I mostly like to knit easy things, so these patterns are too high-maintenance for me. Fun to look at though!

    I will be making 5-6 of these patterns for my sweetie <3 I have been looking at Men's knitting books for a few days now and this is the first that I have found with patterns that are timeless and that my bf would wear.

    A couple of good patterns, but this book got me wondering . . . why is it that handknit garments for men always seem to look handmade, and not in a beautiful artisanal way, but in a slightly frumpy, haven't-quite-mastered-tailoring-or-even-stitches kind of way.

    have checked this out from the library countless times. A good mix of basic sweaters in a variety of weights. Tristan wants the 50s style cardigan in brown.

    I thought the patterns were ugly or very boring; I wouldn't want to make any of these. I thought the patterns were ugly or very boring; I wouldn't want to make any of these.
