Knitting patterns for men

Knitting and crochet patterns for this we mean patterns to create a garment or accessory that has been designed to be worn by a man (or boy), not patterns that have been written in a special man-friendly way that male knitters and crocheters can understand! Of course, the language of stitching is all inclusive (unisex if you will) so whether you are a man knitting for another man, a man knitting for a woman, a woman knitting for man or an agender person knitting for themselves or another, then you are in the right place.

The range of men's patterns is on the rise as knitting, crochet and home-made crafts in general gain in popularity, particularly amongst male millennials. We've got a pattern for you here whether you want to knit a fashionable jumper for your brother, a cosy scarf for your father, a funky hat for your nephew, a trendy cardigan for your son, a pair of toasty socks for your granddad or even some fabulous fingerless mitts in self-striping yarn for your flamboyant step-uncle.
