Men knit ... and have for centuries. Soldiers, cowboys, and sailors traditionally knitted their own garments and today's men are following suit. Don't let society squelch the truth about men and knitting any longer! You can join the uprising of male knitters, even if you've never touched a pair of needles. Featuring classic men's designs with an edgy twist, Michael del Vecchio's bold new guide will show you: 22 original patterns, from the Tribal Sweater to the Felted Military Belt, all the basics a guy needs to teach himself to knit, clearly illustrated, step-by-step instructions for every stitch, how to alter and design your own patterns, tips on how to start your own revolutionary men's knitting group. Knitting with Balls will inspire you with its witty, modern approach to men's knitting, whether you are a seasoned knitter on a new recruit. It's the perfect guide for the female yarn addict in search of a cool gift for her guy, or for members of the growing band of male knitters. Book jacket.

Not sure how desirable these patterns will be to men. Some of them seem effeminate or ludicrous: Eg. A beer bottle holder, a wallet.... There is a nice cable knit sweater pattern however and list of resources in the back for male knitters.

Both high quality patterns, and a manifesto for men who knit. But don't cheap out on the yarn, guys. You should be willing to pay at least as much as you would for a Canucks ticket.

I like the knitted laptop bag.
