Men's Knits

  • by Erika Knight

    A capsule collection of 20 hand-knit projects for men of all ages, from 17 to 71. Offering sweaters, cardigans, vests and accessories; Erika knows exactly what knitwear men want to wear: practical and comfortable yet also distinctive and stylish.

    The first section, Basics, presents strong, classic shapes, from the definitive v-neck sweater to an easy-wear cardigan.

    In New Classics, Erika has reworked many of the basic menswear shapes to give them a contemporary edge. So the basic v-neck sweater becomes a slimmer fit whilst a cardigan is patterned in oversized cables. The Items section includes one-off garments for men who aren’t afraid of making a statement whilst Accessories complete the look with a selection of hats and scarves.

    Yarns are all natural – wools, cottons, bamboo and hemp – and the palette is neutral, stone, grey and basic black, along with some stronger fashion colours such as teal and chocolate. Each garment comes in a range of five sizes – from small to xxl – and schematics are given to detail the key measurements. Stunning photography shows the garments in alternative colour ways, different moods, and worn by men of all ages.

  • Erika Knight:

    My yarn collection is concise and considered with fibres and colours carefully selected so that you can be confident in choosing a beautiful, quality yarn for whatever you wish to create.

    My ethos has always been to keep things simple: to support British manufacturing where possible, to promote sustainable, natural fibres and to celebrate traditional skills. Having worked in the textile industry for most of my career and in many different guises, I am passionate about innovation and heritage in equal balance.

    When you are taking the time to craft something by hand, it is as much about the process as the final outcome, so for me, it is important to use the best possible materials. This of course means using different yarns and fibres for different purposes and understanding the characteristics of each.

    “I believe it is an inherent human trait to construct fabric in order to catch, clothe, nurture and decorate”
