The Manly Art of Knitting
A cult classic, The Manly Art of Knitting was originally published in 1972, but has been out of print for decades. Fougner initially published this book in the hope that it would encourage men to take up knitting, or those who did, would openly embrace it.
In this amusing, yet practical guide to knitting, Dave Fougner provides a step-by-step guide for beginners as well as those taking up the needles again. Containing all of the original black and white illustrations and photographs, one can't help but smile at the shots of well-worked hands delicately knitting a blanket for a dog, horse or companion. Chapters include: basics, pattern stitches (garter, stockinette, purl, rib, moss, rise, and basket weave), projects, and problems.
