Knitting for Men: 50 Man Approved Knits
Men--we can't live with 'em, can't live with out 'em, and can't figure out what to knit 'em. Knitting for men comes with a whole host of challenges. We keep stashes of brightly colored yarn and print patterns of lacy scarves for ourselves, but projects seem few and far between when we try knitting for men. Sometimes we think it will suffice to make a favorite pattern a little more masculine--knitting in a different color or making the size a little larger--only to discover that it just won't do. Don't worry--we've collected 50 different dude-approved knitting patterns that he'll love. Knitting for men is easy when you have this manly collection of knits at your side. These macho knits are perfect for the man in your life.
