Publisher Comments:

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.

A knitting superstar (San Francisco Chronicle) and author of the New York Times bestselling Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook and other Stitch 'N Bitch books, Debbie Stoller combines fashion savvy with uncommon knitting sense. 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.

Synopsis:

For the Men in Your Life!

This attitude-packed guide to knitting and crocheting for the men in your life covers the pitfalls, the tricks, and the rewards, plus 45 awesome projects--every one guy-reviewed and -approved, and many designed by male knitters or women using men as design partners.

  • Why "what's your favorite color?" is a dangerous question.
  • Sweater sizing on the sly: Measure one he already loves to wear.
  • Why NOT to bring him along to pick out the yarn--and how you can't go wrong with luxurious alpacas, silks, cashmeres, and camels, even for the most macho of boyfriends.
  • Say adios forever to the curse of the boyfriend sweater.

First of all, I really love the name of this book. I love to knit and crochet. For my friend I have either knitted or crochet a hat or cap for him in many different designs and colors.

Even though a couple of the patterns are hideous, this is overall another hit for Debbie! Most of the patterns are very modern and attractive.
This book has also taught me some new tricks! I couldn't live without this one.

Great projects for the man in your life, or the knitting man. A few of the projects made me shake my head, but overall my husband found many sweaters he would like me to knit for him.
