Hi there.  I have just joined this great site but am a little disappointed in one thing.

There seems to be a lack of details from the male point I view .  What I would like to see are some patterns in the daily for men as it seems to be totally Female.  I know we are the minority but perhaps you could do a column for the guys who knit guy patterns.  Yes we also knit women's stuff, but I feel we are a bit left left out.

I say support us Guys That Craft.

Cheers Paul 😃

Sounds like a great idea to me. I knit men's sweaters too and it's sometimes difficult finding just the right pattern.

I realize this is a female dominated site, but I thought of a few things you might enjoy. We did recently put together this free collection of sweater patterns that you might like, that is here: http://www.knittingdaily.com/free-guide-knitting-increases-decreases/

We also have our first men's collection with 7 free patterns: http://www.knittingdaily.com/7-Free-Knitting-Patterns-for-Men/

At the store we worked to put together this guide to knitting for men, it's an informative read with some fun pattern ideas: http://www.interweavestore.com/about-knitting-for-men

If you have any ideas for what you'd like to see, we're always open to suggestions. Happy knitting.

Hi Tiffany,

 

I am knitting for my husband "Terry's Pullover", one of your free downloads.  I am a very experienced knitter, but i'm having major problems with the dividing for the neck.  I followed the directions and when I get to the part to turn the work and work on the WS, the upper front latice chart dosen't seem to work with the existing cable pattern.  Another question is assuming it works, do I reverse the chart (left to right) for the right side.  I looked to see if there was any erata but couldn't find, only for books. I'm going to unknit for the third time and try again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
