Fathers Day 2024 - Our Fave Knits For Men

We often get asked if we have any knits for men and the answer is always a resounding YES! Currently our photography is limited to me and Chloe photographing knits on ourselves and we don’t have any (willing) male models so you have to imagine our knits with… less boobage. But nothing that we make is exclusively for women… it’s all just a matter of taste and style.

I’ve pulled together some of our most popular/traditional knits for men to give you some inspiration but if the man in your life would rock some Claudia Cuffs then please don’t let me restrict your vision!

Not Your Basic Stitch Jumper

A comfy cosy knit. With a variation of textures on this intermediate knit, you'll make the four panels and finish with a 'pick up and knit' neckline once you've sewn your pieces together. It looks great in a single colour but you can make it in contrasting colours too for a striking look.

And please do remember the only thing stopping you from selecting one of our patterns and making it for a man is imagination! <3
