Since I began designing last year, I've worked a lot with my own son in mind. There are a lot of patterns available for women and girls. While there are patterns for boys and men available, these are far fewer and often they aren't as modern or wearable as women's patterns are.
So it probably is no surprise that I am working on a collection of sweaters for men and boys. I know what I like, and what my husband prefers (D has no opinion, yet). But I'd love to hear what all you other knitters out there prefer. Whether you knit for men, or boys, or are a male knitter yourself please share with me what kinds of patterns you look for, what kind of yarn weights, details, etc.
In thanks for sharing your opinion I will give away three individual patterns from my collection of self-published designs (check them out on Ravelry) to three commenters next week (probably Friday the 8th). Be sure to leave your Ravelry name with your comment so I can gift the patterns to you later! Thanks for sharing your thoughts what you love!
