We’ve designed this beautiful book full of timeless, wearable knitwear for men using three weights of Sirdar Country Classic. Cast-on with 4 Ply for finer knits like our Essential Roll Neck, choose Double Knitting for a Cable Crew Sweater or cosy up with Worsted for a stylish Shawl Collar Cardigan.

Inspired by popular men's knitwear brands, our designers selected four easy-wear shades across all three weights of Country Classic to ensure that every one of these knits for men will effortlessly complement his everyday wardrobe.

We’ve shown each design in two shades so you can return to this book again and again to knit your favourites.

Yarn Facts

About This Yarn

Sirdar Country Classic worsted is soft, merino wool blend in a large and versatile palette of flattering shades. Worsted is the favourite yarn weight of our American customers. A little heavier than double knitting it is ideal for year round knits with a little extra warmth.

What's it like to work with?

The pure merino blend is beautifully soft and comfortable to work and your stitches will glide over your needles. Experienced knitters will especially enjoy the excellent stitch definition and opportunity to showcase your skills in this weight.

What is it best for?

Worsted is a real all-rounder. Excellent stitch definition keeps intricate colour work and textured stitches clear and crisp. And because the soft, cosy merino is blended with acrylic, heavily textured larger knits remain wonderfully light and easy to wear.
