Knitting for Men: 50 Man Approved Knits

By: Ashley Alfirevic, Editor of AllFreeKnitting.com
Updated April 19, 2018

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.

Knitting Mittens for Men

Knitting for men is a challenge when they act as if they don't get cold in the winter time. When your man starts burying his hands in his pockets, it's time to knit him a pair of mitts. He may not say his hands were chilly, but he'll appreciate the gloves! Make sure his hands are warm when he's stubbornly watching those outdoor sporting events in the snow.
