Présentation de l'éditeur

For as long as women have been knitting, they’ve been knitting garments for men—only to have men hide their lovingly created pieces in drawers and closets. Men aren’t being intentionally cruel; they’re just not comfortable in knitwear made with bright colors, itchy yarn, or flashy designs.
So what’s a knitter to do? Understand the male psyche, says knitting instructor Bruce Weinstein. In Knits Men Want he presents ten hilarious essays, each based on a rule that helps women knit for men successfully. “Men Are Babies” explains why guys need to wear soft fabrics. “Men Hate Fittings” describes how to create a sweater based on one that’s in his wardrobe. Following each essay is a timeless master pattern, from socks, hats, and scarves to an array of sweaters, all in a range of sizes and most written for multiple gauges. With this book in hand, women finally have the secret to knitting garments that men will appreciate and actually wear.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 tricot pour hommes 13 octobre 2011
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Jolis modèles , très classiques toutefois , j'aurais aimé plus de fantaisie , mais c'est ce que veulent les hommes , selon l'auteur... Le plus: les modèles sont donnés pour plusieurs grosseurs de laine. Le hic: tout est en anglais , c'est assez technique , il vaut mieux tout traduire avant . Même si on maîtrise la langue , il faut faire une gymnastique avec les sigles et les abréviations!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Knits Everyone Wants 6 avril 2010
Par Toasted Toads - Publié sur Amazon.com
I admit that I have yet to make an actual sweater. I've made numerous hats, cowls, socks, mittens, etc. Something about dealing with gauge and spending hours and hours on a sweater that might come out the wrong size is slightly nerve wracking.

I've spent at least 4 months trying to figure out what my first sweater is going to be. Do I want cables? Lace? Cardigan? Pullover? Wool? etc and so forth. I'm a girl, the sweater needs to be flattering, and in the perfect color, and less boring than plain stockinette. The biggest problem for me is that I'm not a tiny person, so anything I make (once I do the gauge swatching and such) still needs to be altered with short rows for the bust and waist shaping. After 4 months of indecision I decided instead to make my first sweater for my brother, who is one of the only men in my life I believe would appreciate it.

I brought "Knits Men Want" to dinner last night so he could pick out what he wanted. I would've thought he'd want the henley (it's my favorite), but he prefers the cardigan (although he's still undecided on buttons vs. zipper). My favorite part about this whole process is that I can pick a yarn that I want to work with (and that he likes) and figure out which gauge suits the yarn so that I get a fabric I like (not too holey and not too stiff) and all the math for the pattern is already done for me. Assuming I end up making sweaters for more men in my life during my life (I'm only 25...I have plenty of knitting time left), there are a lot of shapes and sizes to clothe, and that's accounted for in this book.

I also love the bit of humor that is included in the book. I think it might help me get through the cursing and frogging that I'm sure will happen at some point in this process, and it's good to have the reassurance that I am learning from other people's sweater "mistakes." (And the unfortunate incident of wiping up cat puke with a cashmere hat, that was funny and sad. Rule #5 "Not All Men Are Worthy Of Cashmere.")

It's a good book. It covers the basics, which is really all a guy's gonna wear anyway (except for some funky colored socks...maybe) and will be a part of my knitting arsenal for a while.

P.S. An aside on socks...most sock patterns are written for a woman, at the largest we're looking at a 9" circumference...this book goes up to 11".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Guy Projects 26 mars 2010
Par Fairbanks Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you are looking for a project to knit for the man (or men) in your life, this may be the perfect book. All the patterns are appealing and they are provided in various charted sized from 40" to 60". The patterns are given in different gauges and they all list the amount of yarn needed for completion. All of them are practical and attractive. The patterns are easy to follow and I especially like the feature of varied gauges for each project.

The book starts out with a comparison of what men want vs. what women want. For instance, men like to blend in while women may want to stand out in a crowd. A women will dress up for any occasion but a man will dress up for his wedding and a funeral. Women will skip lunch to afford a new outfit. Men will wear an old outfit to take a woman to lunch. Sound familiar?!

My favorite patterns are The Basic Pullover and Vest, The Raglan-Sleeved Henley, The Thick and Warm Socks, and the Watch Cap. All of these patterns are 'guy patterns'.

I find this book a great resource. It has projects that I want to make and the instructions are easy to follow. I give it 5 stars.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Bad, bad pattern design! Don't buy, 30 janvier 2012
Par Martin Vick - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book because I really liked that the different yarn gauges were given. The pattern I followed from this book ended up giving me armholes that were about four inches too big for the sleeve. My knitted pieces were correct in their measurements that were given in the diagrams showing the finished sizes. Then I did the math comparing the sleeve top length with the armhole opening and it was obvious that this was a bad, bad pattern. The sleeve type is a drop shoulder with an unshaped sleeve top, The lines were all straight so it was easy to measure. Also the shoulders were pretty narrow to be a drop shoulder. I wish I had caught this earlier as I am now ripping this sweater apart and revamping the design. I read the other reviews and other knitters whom have actually knitted an item from this book have complaints that are similar. Great idea to list the different gauges but who quality checked these patterns? CJP

Par Many Feathers Boy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Being a knitter, and being a man, and being a man of a size that even the modest offering of male knitting patterns do not fit it is amazing and nigh unto a miracle to find a book that makes me want to make not one or two but /every/ pattern inside it! I cannot wait to own this book and the moment the fiscal opportunity arises, I'll do so ;) Just the fact that I want to knit them is enough for me, discounting everything else.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 knits men want 20 décembre 2011
Par Kerry Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
I knit for several men, and some of them fit the model the author describes. I liked the tables of figues to suit each gauge. However, when I made the sweater that features on the cover, something was seriously wrong. I am experienced knitter and followed the instructions carefully and ended up with a garment with the strangest rectangular neckline, and it looked like it was on backwards. And when we put it on backwards, it looked worse. I have to rip it back to the armholes and redo it using a different pattern.

Another complaint, after the purchase I started receiving tweets from the author. Isn't passing personal information to third parties illegal?
