Some great knitting patterns for men

I think a handsome knit can really complement a gorgeous man and make a great winter accessory. Here are two patterns I really love and have made several times, and am happy to share with other enthusiastic knitters.

The first is called the Harlow Diagonal Beanie and is a really quick knit. I adapted it slightly and used a chunky yarn instead of an aran weight with 8mm needles instead of 9mm needles. I LOVE this pattern, and think it showcases the yarn I chose, Vinnies Toris, very well. This is the ideal yarn for this project because it hangs so beautifully.

The other pattern is for gloves and it’s a really fantastic fingerless pattern that is also a quick knit. I used African Expressions Harmony – one of my all time favourite yarns – for this as it’s so soft and is the perfect weight. The pattern is called Treads and really a winner!
