A helpful overview provides information on sizing, style, and fiber options. Then grab your hook and dive on into any one of 26 projects, done in a muted, masculine color palate with touches of bold color to liven things up. Classic fingerless gloves will suit every guy from lumberjack to skateboarder. The thick Zip It Cabled Vest will keep him warm without feeling encumbered. Or crochet a variation of the traditional Aran fishermen's sweater or a tailored cotton workout pullover in vibrant green and black.From a Jock Block Hat & Scarf to golf club covers, this attractively photographed collection is packed with ideas.

Overall, the designs were overly simple. For the sweaters, a few decreases here and there can make the sweaters a bit less boxy, but overall not terribly impressed with the patterns. I'm a guy that likes to crochet, and I like some of Drew's patterns on Ravelry over this book. Given that, I did like the tie pattern.

-pictures available on Ravelry
-some of the basic shapes are nice, but finished products look clumsy, unequivocally hand-made, stiff, no drape
-seems to use overly bulky yarn in every project
-is this what men prefer? I would have thought these sweaters would be uncomfortable, scratchy in many cases
-would love to show these patterns to a guy to find out whether they truly are appealing
-useful suggestions re measurements, men's fitting preferences, etc.
-review of basic stitches, glossary, etc.

I didn't really like anything in this book, and i don't think my boyfriend would wear any of it.

This is great if you or your guy like boxy, unflattering sweaters! Otherwise, pass on this.
