On today’s episode of YarnCraft, the ladies of YarnCraft dedicate the episode to men who yarncraft and to the men that we yarncraft for. We share some hilarious and insightful comments from some of our male listeners, share project ideas for man-friendly knitting and crocheting, and hear from a couple of guys at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio’s monthly Men’s Night.
Find out the secrets of men from what our listeners do while knitting to what unexpected things Liz’s dad makes with Chenille Thick & Quick.
Patterns discussed include:
- Classic Cable Scarf
- Meandering Rib Scarf in Fishermen’s Wool and Wool-Ease
- 2 1/2 Hour or Less Rib Scarf (as seen in Jaremy’s blog post)
- Men’s Grey Socks
- Crochet Adult Booties
