      Sorry about that DreAnna – apparently I cannot add downloadable pdfs as a link. Live and learn! I’ve updated the post and now there’s a URL in the notes on the pattern that you can cut and paste into a new tab – this will cause the pdf to automatically download.

    It really is hard to find projects for guys – I know I always hit a bit of a brick wall trying to think of things to make my brother^^; So this is a really awesome roundup with some fabulous patterns, thanks so much for sharing!

    Thank you for the lovely pictures’. However, 2xl is very small for many men these days’ and I don’t know how to make the patterns’ into 5 and 6xl for my sons’. Thank you.

      I’m in a similar boat…my father in law wears a 3-4x, and I’d love to make a sweater for him for Christmas….but as someone who has only started crocheting this year I’m definitely still a novice. Figuring out how to adjust a pattern to get the size I need and maintain proper fit is beyond my skill level…..anyone have any ideas out there?
