The newest from bestseller Stoller (Stitch 'n Bitch) gives men their first chance to snuggle up with her fuzzy, fashion-forward knitting projects. While the book is aimed largely at the women who knit for them, men will be happy to know that Stoller's first concern is for their particular tastes: many interesting elements—fancy stitches, unusual yarn, unique designs—are anathema to most males, who prefer simple pieces in a darker palate. Part two includes a wide array of (not too) colorful, occasionally edgy projects. Though there are designs which any man would be proud to wear (scarves, caps, tube socks and sweaters), many projects are geared toward younger men; among funky fashions, two standouts are the well-proportioned biker jacket (with long, slim arms and body for full coverage) and a felted DJ Bag with a retro cassette tape pattern (though some designs—such as the beer bottle–shaped throw pillows—are just plain juvenile). As expected, Stoller's directions are clear, terms are well explained, illustrations are easy-to-follow and accompanying photos are stylish and sexy, though projects are not rated for difficulty. Those unafraid to venture beyond their comfort zone will find something suitable for most any man on their holiday gift list. (Dec.)

The only disappointment I found is that in attempting to recreate the argyle scarf on the front cover, the color chart was too small to read. Trying to use it was so frustrating! When I try to make the scarf again, I will definitely enlarge that chart.
Despite getting this book for the both crocheting and knitting patterns, I will also add my voice to the indignant crowd of people protesting the utter lack of crochet patterns. False advertising to the max.
Two stars because despite not being fresh, fun or original, the patterns were still comprehensible for the most part... but if you look hard enough I'm sure you could find them on the internet if you did not already learn them from your grandmother.
Some stuff is odd, fun or juvenile but there is a lot more in this book than these things. In fact, the reason I decided to buy this book was because I had just purchased another knitting book of men's stuff. The other book mostly consisted of drop sleeve sweaters. This one is tons better.
One thing - I think all knitting books should be spiral-bound hardbacks. You naturally lay them open to copy patterns or work from them and they just start falling apart. This one is not a spiral-bound hardback unfortunately.
