I will be getting married next year, and my sisters will be two of my attendants (the third is my BFF, who is a guy). I want to thank them with something nice, and it occurred to me that I could make things for them. I went and browsed Ravelry kind of randomly, and came across a pattern for a lovely, lacy-looking summer wrap. Almost immediately I decided to make two of them, one for each sister, in the same yarn--so, two identical, lovely wraps. Promptly went out and bought the yarn. A very pretty shade of blue, a color all three of us love.

As if I didn't already have too many project on my hooks...

(Now I just need to get or make something for my BFF.)

I'm on Rav too! What's the name of the pattern you chose?

Does your BFF like fingerless gloves? The kind you can wear to keep your hands warm but still do things you need finger grip for. & maybe a matching scarf? So it's still in the same vein of being handmade/crocheted, but masculine.

same or darker shade of blue, depending on what you're using, to keep it in the bridal party theme. :)

There is a fabulous dragon scale fingerless glove pattern out there somewhere - I keep seeing completed project pics.

I asked my SO what kind of masculine equivalents to a wrap he could think of, and the best he came up with was a cummerbund. He also said things like tie, socks, hat-band, touque, and mittens.

yes, a cummerbund sounds like a good idea, since it's for a wedding. Matching fingerless gloves & cummerbund could be kinda cool & then it's not like something he might not wear again. the ladies will surely wear their wraps in the future, so he should get something he can use later, too. waistcoat might be too involved, we don't want you crocheting yourself to fatigue before your special day!

Have you checked out Stephen West's patterns? Or just browsed the 'for men' tab on Rav? Tons of good stuff.

Oh, the wraps sound lovely, what a great idea.

For your BFF, what about a cowl? Or a scarf in a different shape to the one you've already made him? Like, Snow Drops Scarf?
