On this episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee share ideas for great knit & crochet gifts for the men in your life. With Father’s Day coming up in about a month, we talk about project ideas–and ways that you can customize them based on your father’s (or uncle, brother, husband, etc.) favorite activities, sports teams, or colors.
We also interview Shannon Mullet-Bowlsby, one half of the Shiba Guyz design team, who shares one man’s perspective on considerations when making garments and other projects for the guys in your life. Find out the one modification that you might want to consider when making a sweater for your guy! Click here to learn more about their newest book, Urban Edge.
