Sweaters and accessories for men,
designed by a man.
Who can know better what a man likes to wear than a man?
I started knitting more than 30 years ago, and at that time found most men’s sweater patterns uninspiring. So, I quickly learned to design my own patterns and have been doing so ever since. Over the years, I’ve talked to women and men who knit from New York to Kansas to L.A., and I’ve learned that the need for more enticing men’s patterns continues to this very day. Recently I asked thousands of knitters what men really want in a hand-knit sweater, and they told me: sophisticated, contemporary designs with classic tailoring in quality yarns, which is the basis for James Cox Knits designs.
My kits make great knitting gifts for men and women of all skill levels, and most are knit from the top down, in the round, and have no seams to be sewn. Each kit includes high-quality yarns in handsome hues. So start knitting, knowing your results will be stylish and actually worn by your husband, son, father, boyfriend, partner…or you.
Of the sweaters in my men’s DIY knitwear collection, the one most favored by both men and women is gray with brightly colored sleeves. I wondered if the interest was found in the bright or the neutral color. So I looked around to see what I could learn about the color gray.
