The Manly Art of Knitting Book
The book contains helpful illustrations and wonderful black and white photographs. You can’t help but smile at the shots of calloused hands lovingly knitting blankets for dogs and horses. Chapters include basics, pattern stitches (garter, stockinette, purl, rib, moss, rise, and basket weave), projects, and problems. Fougner proclaims, “Only a man would knit a hammock with shovel handles for needles and manila rope for yarn.” Whether or not this is true, Fougner will show you how it’s done.
