"For as long as women have been knitting, they?ve been knitting garments for men?only to have men hide their lovingly created pieces in drawers and closets. Men aren?t being intentionally cruel; they?re just not comfortable in knitwear made with bright colors, itchy yarn, or flashy designs.

The patterns are fine, but the text is really painful to read. If you like non-stop clichés like "men hate shopping" and "women like fashion", you'll feel right at home with this. If annoying and groundless gender stereotyping bother you, however, steer clear of this. ( )

From years of instructing knitters and watching women knit under-appreciated gifts for the men they love, Bruce Weinstein offers 10 rules to guide women in choosing knitting patterns, fibers and colors for their men, along with a perfect pattern to illustrate each rule. After going clothes shopping with my dad, brothers, son, and former husband, who all like clothes, I found myself nodding with recognition and sometimes laughing out loud as I read each of Weinstein's "rules." Here are some great examples:

For Rule No. 9, "Men are oblivious," Weinstein offers a reversible-cable scarf, so your lovingly fashioned neckwear will always look good, even if he throws it on backwards. Weinstein also helpfully explains the length and width of scarf most men are willing to accept. (Hint: It's a different length and width than you might want in a scarf, and Weinstein explains why.)

Rule No. 1, "Men can't fake it," turns out to mean that men won't pretend to like something they don't, and they won't wear it, either. (Translation for the Y-chromosome-challenged: If he doesn't like cables or wool, DON'T knit him an Alice Starmore Aran sweater, no matter how good it would look on him.)

I have a nineteen-year-old son who has kindly accompanied me to a yarn store several times, showed interest in what I was doing and once asked me to knit a scarf for him with yarn he loved in a pattern he picked out; sadly, the scarf has never been worn. This is thoughtfully explained by Rule No. 2: "Men resist change." Weinstein says that most men have their style pretty much set by age 15, and prefer to wear the same things over and over. (If he likes one sweater you knit for him, he may want the second one to be the same pattern, or even the same color.)

Of course, Weinstein has his own great stories to illustrate each of these sad, but too-true rules. You'll want the book for his wry humor, the rest of the rules, and the 10 solid, I-can-see-him-actually-wearing-that patterns in the book, which are written in multiple gauges and sizes. Weinstein's rules will even help you pick patterns on your own your man may want to wear. But, with patterns this good, you may never need to pick another one. ( )
