Every knitting book written by a woman for men's knits has been somewhat disappointing. Janeen K rated it liked it Feb 06,
Several great sweater patterns! Thanks to this book, I finally found a pattern that appealed to my husband and won't be boring for me to knit. He's happy because he'll finally get the hand knit sweater I promised to make him after we got engaged. Best of all is I don't have to write my own pattern which I thought I was going to end up doing.

Every knitting book written by a woman for men's knits has been somewhat disappointing. A few cute designs, but Martin Storey's book Knitting for Him is much better. Jan 19, Debbie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: First section of book is devoted to understanding style and fit; how to choose which color and texture flatters his physique and how to customize pattern for fit.

Customer Reviews 1 Wish I hadn't bought it. If there had been pictures of some or all of the sweaters I would never have bought this book. My husband who is more corporate does not wear big, oversize, baggy, drop shoulder sweaters.
And other than the vests, that was the style of sweater provided in the book. There was no shaping on the sleeve cap and little shaping on the armhole. The first part was interesting, talking about what kind of sweaters men wanted and providing a table for age groups.
But the designs missed the mark. It would have been nice to see more fitted sweaters. Even the cardigans were falling of the shoulders.
