Modern Men’s Knits (eBook)


Modern Men’s Knits is a collection of 11 designs using Valley Tweed, Moordale, Softyak DK, Cotton Cashmere, Felted Tweed Aran, and Island Blend, from designer Jen Geigley. Classic shapes and texture work, combined with a tonal colour palette, give this collection a timeless quality.




Welcome to Modern Men’s Knits, a timeless collection of garments for men that are casual, contemporary and wearable. This collection brings modern shapes, a sophisticated colour palette and subtle details together to create a group of sweaters and accessories perfect for the modern man. I’m a minimalist at heart and I truly believe less is more and simple equals wearable. There’s no greater satisfaction than finishing a hand-knit piece, trying it on and falling in love with it. Whether you’re knitting a sweater for someone else or for yourself, the goal is to make go-to pieces that feel just right. I’ve included a sizing worksheet (pg 60)to make this process easier, especially if you’re knitting a sweater for someone else. This worksheet will give you a space to record actual measurements, as well as measurements from an existing well-fitting sweater from your wardrobe, or from the wardrobe of the person you are knitting for. Whether your goal is a garment that is fitted or relaxed, this collection includes endless options to enhance your cosy, comfortable hand-knit wardrobe – Jen Geigley
