For as long as women have been knitting, they've been knitting garments for men-only to have men hide their lovingly created pieces in drawers and closets.
Men aren't being intentionally cruel; they're just not comfortable in knitwear made with bright colors, itchy yarn, or flashy designs.
So what's a knitter to do? Understand the male psyche, says knitting instructor Bruce Weinstein.
In Knits Men Wan he presents ten hilarious essays, each based on a rule that helps women knit for men successfully. "Men Are Babies" explains why guys need to wear soft fabrics. "Men Hate Fittings" describes how to create a sweater based on one that's in his wardrobe.
Following each essay is a timeless master pattern, from socks, hats, and scarves to an array of sweaters, all in a range of sizes and most written for multiple gauges.
With this book in hand, women finally have the secret to knitting garments that men will appreciate and actually wear.
