about

Debbie Stoller knows that at least half the projects women knit are intended for the men in their lives. She also knows that knitting
for a boyfriend or husband or father is full of pitfalls. The answer Son of Stitch 'N Bitch, the hip, smart knitter's guide to knitting for men.

A "knitting superstar" (San Francisco Chronicle) and author of the New York Times bestselling Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook and other Stitch 'N Bitch books, Debbie Stoller combines fashion savvy with uncommon knitting sense. Here's how to get the right sweater measurement (because size definitely matters)—and why never to bring him along to pick out the yarn. Why "what's your favorite color" is a dangerous question—and how you can't go wrong with luxury yarns for even the most rugged of boyfriends. Best of all, here are 45 edgy, hipster patterns that are guy-vetted and approved, many designed by male master-knitters or women with men as design partners. Here's the Night & Day double-sided Brooklyn Bridge scarf. The Biker Boy sweater with a patch on the shoulder to protect against messenger bag wear and tear. Lucky Socks—think rat pack at the casino. Skull Isle Cap & Mitts. The Ernie sweater. Hangover Helpers—stuffed plush "beermeister" and "whiskey bottle" pillows. The Retropolitan Cardigan, with a geek-chic take on Mr. Rogers. Plus Man Hands (fingerless gloves), a Hackie Sack Hoodie, Pinup Girl Illusion scarf (oh, behave!), and more.
Debbie Stoller is the bestselling author of the Stitch'n Bitch series of knitting books and calendars. She comes from a long line of Dutch knitters, has a Ph.D. from Yale in the psychology of women, and is the editor-in-chief of Bust magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book But Not For Beginners Although there is a great deal of good information and patterns in these books, unfortunately many of the patterns have mistakes that have not been updated by the author or publisher. These books have been out a number of years and by now you would think that any errors would be corrected. However, I just started a sock pattern and discovered errors and if not for having knitting experience, would have thrown away a lot of money spent on the yarn to make the pattern. I figured out the error on my own as it has never been reported on Debbie Stoller's website. There are at least two other patterns (the gloves and beer cover that also have been reported to have errors). So if you are able to figure out when a design has mistakes then these books are good for those knitters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great book for the boys It's nice to have so many designs for the boys in one place, instead of having to flip through books to find them. It did surprise me a litte that the editor of a leading feminist mmagazine would write a knittng book full of designs classed as being "for men". It seems to get away from her original book, which had photos of short-haired women hapiilly flaunting their boxy, "man" ish sweaters. One of the things I enjoyed about her books was that knitting isn't 'for' anyone, she showcases male knitters, and female models wearing "guy" sweaters. So I bought the book, but I don't just knit this stuff for my husband (who couldn't be paid to wear a sweater, haha)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderfully written With all of the knitting books available, it is wonderful to read such a delightful author. She makes the technique portions of the book very fun to read. I already have several patterns marked for future knitting.
