Description

Debbie Stoller knows that at least half the projects women knit are intended for the men in their lives. She also knows that knitting for a boyfriend or husband or father is full of pitfalls. The answer? Son of Stitch 'N Bitch, the hip, smart knitter's guide to knitting for men.

Here's how to get the right sweater measurement (because size definitely matters)-and why never to bring him along to pick out the yarn. Why "what's your favorite color" is a dangerous question-and how you can't go wrong with luxury yarns for even the most rugged of boyfriends. Best of all, here are 45 edgy, hipster patterns that are guy-vetted and approved, many designed by male master-knitters or women with men as design partners. Here's the Night & Day double-sided Brooklyn Bridge scarf. The Biker Boy sweater with a patch on the shoulder to protect against messenger bag wear and tear. Lucky Socks-think rat pack at the casino. Skull Isle Cap & Mitts. The Ernie sweater. Hangover Helpers-stuffed plush "beermeister" and "whiskey bottle" pillows. The Retropolitan Cardigan, with a geek-chic take on Mr. Rogers. Plus Man Hands (fingerless gloves), a Hackie Sack Hoodie, Pinup Girl Illusion scarf (oh, behave!), and more.
