Yay! Fantastic men's patterns! Get your needles out, folks. This review has something different for you.

I've gone a little giddy, and not sure which of the so very many fantastically classic, interesting, and handsome men's sweaters to feature. They all share those qualities; if you're looking for a pattern for a man this autumn, go here!

It was difficult to choose a favourite to feature in the image above, but after much debate I went with Huddle. I don't think I have to tell you why this is such a fantastic piece. (but I will squee about that great shawl collar. Niiiiice!)

You many have seen some of his work in Knitty from last year, Streymoy. It's a cozy colourwork cardigan, as is the zippered Duncan. I really like Duncan; the strong colours and geometric patterns seem like fun updated retro winter-wear.

There is certainly a lot to see from this designer, but I'll just point out one more: Marshall. A great use of saddle shoulders, this form fitting ribbed sweater is very classic and flattering.
