If you’re thinking about getting started on a new craft project this weekend, then why not have a go at knitting something new for your hubby or partner?
Warmer temperatures may be approaching, but you’ll still need to be prepared for cool evenings when the heat of the day has vanished. There are lots of great things you can rustle up for the man in your life to keep him warm and looking stylish this summer – read on to find out more!

Knitted Pullover

The summer months tend to be the most sociable for any household – the days are filled with barbecues and picnics, while the warm nights are great for cocktail parties and gatherings.

If your man’s been lumped with the task of minding the barbecue for the evening, a knitted pullover will ensure he stays warm and cosy all through the night. Why not pick a yarn in his favourite colour to make the jumper extra special?

Knitted Cardigan

Does your boyfriend or husband like to keep on top of current fashion trends? Then a knitted cardigan would be the perfect garment for him this summer!

Cardies look great with a t-shirt or shirt and can be coupled with jeans or shorts, depending on the weather. And as the material is quite light and soft, they are also ideal for wear in warmer temperatures. Think about your partner’s style and what would suit him – this will help you decide whether to use a zip fastening or buttons.

Knitted Socks

Socks make for a delightful gift all year round and your man will love the fact you’ve made them yourself. It’s also a great way for you to relax for a few hours after a busy day and do something you love!

A pair of cosy socks would be ideal on cooler days when the weather is overcast and all your partner wants to do is chill out at home. Why not make them more exciting by choosing an interesting pattern
