Free Backpack Project Bag
Checks and ribs have been paired up to create a pair of socks that can run rings around the typical store-bought variety. This pattern’s checkered panels, a simple combination of stockinette and purl stitches, could turn any guy into a fan of hand-knitted socks. Especially since our design is offered in a durable cotton blend with silk and nylon that is also nice and comfy.

The kit for these knit socks, complete with pattern and yarn, comes in a backpack-style project bag. On the front of the backpack is a zippered pouch with a porthole. You can insert the ball of yarn from which you’re knitting and run the yarn through the porthole, so if you like, you can even knit while walking down the street. This kit makes a great knitting gift for men and for women who knit for men.
Note: needles and handsome guy not included.
