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.

For every crafter who has ever wondered how to use the odd ball of yarn left over from a previous project, the answer is here. Now that more and more of us are buying online, there's always a temptation to add one more ball of wool to your basket than the pattern recommends, just in case you can't get the same dye-lot at a later date. Or maybe you are one of the lucky ones who always seems to use slightly less yarn than you expected. And then there are the flash sales online, wool shop events, or craft fairs, where piles of yarn at knockdown prices tempt you to buy without a particular project in mind, just because it's there, it's gorgeous, and it's cheap. Whatever the reason for the size of your yarn stash, one thing is certain, you won't want to waste any of it (or worse still, throw it away). This collection of patterns from Nicki Trench is the answer to your prayers: 25 makes, small and not so small, which can either be made with one ball of yarn or less, or which use up small amounts of different colours in stripes, squares or flowers. Many of the makes are ideal as gifts, including baby hats and bootees, toys, cosies, and bunting. There are also projects for the home, such as a stripy cushion cover, egg cosies and mug warmers. There are also useful tips on choosing substitute yarns and checking your tension. Now you can stop feeling guilty about your stash, and put it to use instead.
