Mar 06, Meredith rated it really liked it Shelves: craft. This book started the wave of patterns for men that weren't goofy but were still creative. Before this, I found that many men's patterns were dorky looking things that your stereotypical grandma would knit for your stereotypical grandpa. That situation wasn't awesome if you have boyfriends or male friends who didn't want baggy Aran sweaters. I disagree that this book is all "hipster" patterns. Some of the patterns, yeah, veer that way vests and guitar straps, I'm looking at you.

But there's st This book started the wave of patterns for men that weren't goofy but were still creative. But there's still plenty of updated classics that I'd make for my father classy-looking scarves , teenage cousins funky hats and boyfriend sweaters, since I'm all about ignoring the sweater curse. The patterns are aimed at advanced beginner or above. So if you're just getting the hang of standardized knitting patterns versus the more hands-on style of beginner books, this is probably a little bit of an adjustment.
I've knit a lot of patterns in the book, and I haven't found much errata; I could see where it might make assumptions that would throw off the absolute newbie. Debbie Stoller's first Stitch N Bitch guide is a good reference to have on hand if that's the case. Jul 07, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: general-crafty , knitting. There are some nice patterns in this book, but I had to look past some of the yarn choices and envision the garments in colors and yarns that would look better on the men in my life Kris gave the nod on a few of these, so some may end up in the queue before long.
Wonderful Parrerns Wonderful variety of easy to follow men's patterns. I had been searching for a cardigan with a shawl collar and found it in this great book. Meh It doesn't have that great a selection of patterns. I wish it had a bit more variety. There's a few good ones though. Aug 03, Tonileg rated it liked it Shelves: knitting-crafts.
Guy style knitting patterns and a good addition to your holiday knitting gift ideas. I really liked the many hat patterns which I quickly knitted up for the family and men friends in my life, honestly I don't know anyone that deserves a sweater yet, so I didn't linger on the those patterns, but they look modern and cool too. I wish there was less skull motif knitting in the stitch 'n b series, but otherwise good quality easy patterns. Mostly aran medium to bulky sized yarn so everything knits up qu Guy style knitting patterns and a good addition to your holiday knitting gift ideas.
Mostly aran medium to bulky sized yarn so everything knits up quick but nothing really advanced or challenging for the expert knitters so for those folks, they should check out Man's Knitting Book: Classic Patterns from the 20's to the 50's which has some fancy old school ideas. Nov 04, JoAnn rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved the introduction, which gave some history of knitting and some helpful hints for those of us considering creating something for the special men in our lives.
I could see my husband wearing the "Smokin'" sweater, minus the shawl collar. I wonder if Richard would wear them.
One pattern creeped me out. I'm sure boys like it because it's freaky or "cool," but it's not somoething I could bring myself to look at long enough to make. Nov 14, Jessamine rated it really liked it Shelves: knitting. Okay, so I admit that I've only made 2 hats from one pattern from this book. As I said in my previous review, I really like a few of the patterns here and the book offers new challenges that the other two SnB books don't include.
What I really appreciate about this book was the explanation of double knitting. I've always wanted to do it, have seen other explanations of it, but it didn't click for me until I read through this book's explanation of the technique. Though I haven't made a double knit Okay, so I admit that I've only made 2 hats from one pattern from this book. Though I haven't made a double knitted scarf from this book, I did use the technique to create a different scarf which worked out really well.
Feb 16, Soapykitty rated it it was ok Shelves: library-book , crafts. I was suprised and disappointed to see that there are only four crochet patterns in this book and they're nothing special the roll up scarves only look nice rolled up! I liked the antlers scarf and the beer bottle pillow but I'm not much of a knitter so I can't make them. Most of the stuff in this book is okay looking but it doesn't look any different from something you could get from the store. It was fun to read the "horror" stories about gals who lovingly make their boyfriends something only I was suprised and disappointed to see that there are only four crochet patterns in this book and they're nothing special the roll up scarves only look nice rolled up!
It was fun to read the "horror" stories about gals who lovingly make their boyfriends something only to be dumped or divorced and the history of Men in Knits. Skip this book if you can only crochet. Oct 10, Erika rated it it was amazing Shelves: nonfiction. I love love love this book!! I currently have it checked out, and I've already renewed it once. I know I'm going to have to renew it again, and I'm thinking of asking for it for Christmas.

I've already made the Celtic Beanie for my step-brother, and I'm in the process of making the Ski Beanie for my step-bro's boyfriend and the Uncle Argyle Scarf for my dad. I'm going to continue with the Celtic Beanie hat since it knitted up super fast! Nov 30, Sara rated it really liked it Shelves: knitting.
I am really excited to make several items in this book: the Deady Bear, the ties, a couple of the cardigans, the awesome dice socks. That being said, there are many hilarious and inventive patterns, suited for the more "creative" type of guy. I hate the word "hipster" and I hate stereotyping, but yeah, that's what comes to mind for a lot of th I am really excited to make several items in this book: the Deady Bear, the ties, a couple of the cardigans, the awesome dice socks.

Don't know a better way to describe the vibe. Nov 15, Jenni rated it it was ok Shelves: crafty. I liked the anecdotes about "the sweater curse" - where a guy breaks up with his girlfriend after she laboriously creates him a sweater typically by knitting. I guess some of the sweater patterns were cute if you or a your partner wear that kind of style and can knit , but the few crochet patterns available were not outstanding. I'm not always a fan of the Stitch 'n' Bitch or Happy Hooker stuff though. May 01, Leah rated it liked it. This book would have been a lot better if I knew how to knit.
Unfortunately I don't, but if someone does this has really neat patterns. Another problem I have with this book and the other book by Debbie Stoller "Happy Hooker" is I wish they would give some sort of gauge as to how difficult the patterns are. There is nothing to key you in as to whether the pattern you are looking at is easy or difficult. Aug 27, Sarah rated it it was ok Shelves: crafty. I was incredibly disappointed that this book was written for the modern crafty gal knitting for her boyfriend instead of boy knitters. Doesn't seem like a huge difference thinking abstractly, but I found it becomes very tiresome to continuously read about how to read between the lines of what your BF REALLY wants in a knit garment.
That and it made it a much more disappointing xmas gift for my knitting brother. My biggest problem in this book was the instructions for the "Smoking" sweater. I started knitting it for my husband. I got close to the end and saw that in the beginning when it says I should set aside 8 stitches on a holder - that it should have said to set those 8 stitches aside on BOTH sides. I don't think I've seen any or much errata available for these books. May 13, Anne Hawn Smith rated it really liked it Shelves: read , own , non-fiction , knitting. This is a good book for men's sweaters.
I got it for the "mask" Balaclava. I planned to make it for TE and Evan, but it proved to be too difficult without having the boys around to fit it too. It is a very clever pattern though. There is also a pattern for a silhouette scarf which is very intriguing. All in all, it is a good book and I plan to make more patterns from it. Feb 03, Sybylla rated it liked it Shelves: knitting. I laughed and talked a lot on Facebook about the introduction to this book, Debbie Stoller's razor-witted version of the talking-to that begins every men's knits book I've ever seen.
There are some really great rules in that introduction. And then the patterns break every one of them. It seems I'm just not tacky enough for Stoller's designs, but there are some gems in here. Sep 11, mtthw rated it it was ok. Just like the "Happy Hoooker" book, these patterns were a bit too self awake for my liking think Stuff white People Like. And while the book touts itself as crochet and knitting, it is mostly knitting. If i were a kitter, there was one lovely sweater and maybe that would have been enough.
Also, it felt very, very dated already. Jul 16, Rebecca rated it it was amazing. This book as a variety of crochet and knitting projects for that are fantastic. It's all cool patterns that are designed with guys in mind, but quite a few patterns are great for the no-pink please girls in your life. The patterns are easy to follow and come out great! Plus there are projects for all levels from beginners to "I got this down". Great book for yarnies. Jan 27, Annie rated it really liked it Shelves: crafting-diy-and-how-to.
The projects in this book are similar to ones in her other books although the stripper scarf is a weird addition and kind of in poor taste. Peter Robinson. Big Girl Panties. Stephanie Evanovich.
