Single this Valentine’s? You don’t have to be – Knit Your Own Boyfriend!

Every year on February 14th, couples everywhere flock to fancy restaurants in celebration of the floral industry’s most profitable holiday. But what if Mr. Right (or Mr. Right Now) didn’t show up this year? 

Carol Meldrum’s book, Knit Your Own Boyfriend, is the perfect resource for singletons this weekend. Knit yourself the perfect man, the man you’ve been yarn-ing for!

This book contains detailed instructions on how to create your boyfriend-doll in any shade of the rainbow. But if your ideal man is more on the human side, we recommend Rowan Cotton Glace in Earth (863), Toffee (843), Ochre (833), Oyster (730), or Ecru (725), as seen here!

Do you fancy yourself an astronaut, a man of science? How about an intrepid explorer, a man who’s not afraid of the outdoors? Is a rockstar more your type? With Knit Your Own Boyfriend, you could have any of them (or all of them)!

You could also choose a laid back surfer, a sensitive artist, a firefighter, a computer geek, a sports, star, a doctor, or…a superhero? You bet!

You can also knit additional outfits for your yarny beau. You could knit him a t-shirt and jeans, shorts, a coat, or a jacket; you can be sure this little man won’t be affected by the dreaded sweater curse when you make him his very own raglan sweater!

    I love knitting toys, bu have trouble finding them

    I have a friend who is lamenting not having a boyfriend, and now I have a solution! Would you recommend knitting these in DK (like the yarns suggested), or are these patterns better suited for 4ply?
