Oi, I'm trying not to sound snippy really, but I don't own a single knitting book yet that has a pattern my husband would wear.  The SnB books are right out, as much as I love that stuff for myself.  He's not even really picky.  He's just big and likes simple things.

This sounds exactly like my BF.  But I found a book called "Men in Knits : Sweaters to Knit That He Will Wear" by Tara Manning.  I took a look through it and it has some lovely, beautiful, classic sweaters and things in there that are simple enough for the guy and yet challenging enough so you don't get bored.  I picked out a couple and then had him look and, of course, he picked out two others that he liked.  Fine.  At least now I know that when I get around to making these sweaters he'll love them and wear them.  You should check it out.

As far as not getting your submission into Knitty -- I am sorry about that.  It sounds like a very cool project though so don't get discouraged.

Eh, I'm not that concerned about it.  It was my first knit pattern submission of any kind, really.  And the pattern itself, as I've said elsewhere, was too simple for words.  It's only merit was use of alternative fibers, and perhaps the fibers I chose aren't the right fibers for Knitty.  No problems there.  There will be other patterns to submit.  I'm not the only person who's been rejected by Knitty, and I'm sure I'm in excellent company.  No worries.

well, some of the patterns are o.k...but nothing i would knit and definitely nothing my boyfriend would like. it did give me some ideas though. . .

Maybe it is just me, but I like a lot of the patterns in this issue. I really like hardcore, satchel,wild stripes, and kumo. I can only see myself not knitting just 3 of the patterns actually. I don't actually have a boyfriend( Cry .LOL) to tell me what he would not wear from this issue, so maybe that's the reason I like most of them.

I think the patterns themselves are nice but as someone else pointed out, this didn't seem like a good issue for summer. I can appreciate the knits for men and even think it's a good idea to have an entire issue dedicated to them but snowboard hats, sweaters, and gloves are just not summer items. After waiting so long for this issue to come out I'm quite dissappointed.  Sad

I'm intrigued by the designer of Hardcore.  I want to see what other sorts of things he knits.

I love when boys knit. <3

Not overly keen on the issue, doubt the bf will be asking for any of the patterns any time soon. The articles pissed me off a bit, something about the tone of them put me off but cant quite put my finger on it. Issue went on about men knitting but most of the patterns by women-did i miss a point there?
« Reply #28 on: July 05, 2005 01:50:09 PM »

Well, I think the point of the issue was for Knitty to build up more of a collection of patterns of men's clothing, etc. I can only guess that they just didn't get a lot of submissions from men. And even though more men are knitting these days, they're still vastly outnumbered by women in that arena.

There's a few patterns i'd concider knitting, i'm thinking about Satchel for myself actuly  and maybe Saranac for my little bro and maybe Kumo or maybe something with one of the motifs from kumo on.

I'm not really overly keen on the other sweater patterns, i really wanted to knit something for my husband for an aniversary pressie but he seems to have taken a strong disliking to all the patterns i've showed him, oh well back to the drawing board  Smiley
