Synopsis: 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 Wan 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.

About the Author: Bruce Weinstein has been designing knitwear and teaching knitting for 10 years and has written 15 cookbooks with his partner, Mark Scarborough. Once a creative director at Grey Advertising and The Spier Group, he has appeared on the Today show, The View, CBS This Morning, and QVC, and writes for numerous national publications. He lives in Colebrook, Connecticut.

Book Description Stewart, Tabori Chang Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For as long as women have been knitting, they have been knitting garments for men (oftentimes with the maddening result that the men don t want to wear what they make). Bruce Weinstein swears that men aren t intentionally (or unintentionally) running a passive aggressive campaign against the women in their lives. And it s not that men don t want to wear handknits in general. It s simply a matter of understanding what men really want and then knitting accordingly. For starters, skip the fancy sitchwork. If the stitch name has the word popcorn or butterfly in it, forget it. And don t bother with yarns that make men sweat (even if it s cashmere). And when it comes to colour, forgo the rainbow and think dark or neutral - except maybe, sometimes, with permission, if you re making socks. Unwinding Men is a collection of 10 humorous (and enlightening!) essays and 10 master knitting patterns for men s garments. These 10 patterns, which include variations and tips for customisation, are all any knitter needs to keep the men in her life happily clad in handknits for their entire lives. Each essay focuses on a fact about men that women need to know in order to understand their guys and be able to knit successfully for them. For example, Rule number 8 (Men are Babies) explains why men won t wear anything even the least bit itchy. And Rule number 7 (Men Hate Fittings) gives tips for how to create a sweater based on the size and style of one already in his wardrobe. Each essay is then followed by a timeless pattern, from socks, hats and scarves to an array of sweater styles that men will be happy to receive and will actually wear. Each pattern in this collection includes a broad range of sizes and most are also written for multiple gauges so they can be knitted in various weights of yarn; this allows the knitter to use the same pattern as a basis for all of the men in her life, from son to husband to grandfather.
