    An insightful look at how to knit your guy a sweater Manning s approach was wise and helpful I don t know that my guy will ever want me to knit him a sweater, but at least I have some good ideas on how to go about helping him choose one he might actually wear I thought the projects were so so, but they still gave me some good ideas.

    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 Yay

    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 20 Aran, argle, and cabled rib patterns for cardigans, pullovers, v necks and vests with a few scarves and gloves Great book
