Description

Guys Knit provides a beginners’ guide to anyone who thinks they’d like to give knitting a go. Aimed specifically at the male market, it challenges the perceptions of who knitters are -- and breaks apart those dusty stereotypes to show, once and for all, that knitting is in no way a gendered pastime, but is instead, a universal hobby for anyone interested in working with their hands, and creating warm and practical things to wear, share or even sell.

The author

Nathan Taylor, known in the knitting world as ‘Sockmatician’ has been knitting seriously since 2011 and has had his patterns published in a number of magazines. In 2017, Nathan was named one of the recipients of Knit Now! magazine’s Knitter of the Year awards, in the Online Innovation category. Nathan hosts a popular knitting podcast on YouTube, and has many video tutorials available to help with some of the more unusual techniques used in his patterns. He can be found teaching at yarn shops, knitting retreats and yarn shows all over the country, and in October 2017 taught at the prestigious Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival in New York.
