The Knitting Man[ual] is a rebrand of knitting products to help convince men to overcome previously established stereotypes. Through the use of humor and the simplification of knitting patterns I created the identity of The Knitting Man[ual] to be easily approachable for men. My packaging also features die cuts so the consumer would be able to feel the yarn before their purchase.

What’s Unique?
The Knitting Man[ual] is trying to rebrand a stereotype by bringing an entirely new audience to the craft of knitting.
