The book presents twenty original knitting projects for men's sweaters and accessories. Included will be a variety of sweaters and vests and a few accessories, like hats, mittens, scarves and slippers.
It will include classic masculine styles (Nordic, cables, ribs, stripes) made modern through color and yarn selection. The designs will be contemporary - sweaters and accessories that men will want to wear. The yarns will be classics-smooths and chunky yarns-for the most part in natural fibers like wool and cotton. The colors will be masculine-some grays, browns, blues, etc.-but reflect current designer trends. The projects will be suitable for a variety of skill levels, with most appropriate for the advanced beginner and intermediate knitter. Unusual techniques will be taught, but this is not a "to knit" book.
