Andrea Rangel's Woodsmoke & Ash: Knits for Men features seven stylish yet practical designs.  Rangel shares her inspiration for this collection..."When I first began designing this collection, I had a vision: classy, interesting knits that men would want to wear as well as knit. Having lived in both the city and the country, I have found inspiration in both the practical casualness of the urban Northwest lifestyle, as well as the earthy outdoorsiness of the country. Both places meet in this collection, which melds simplicity, masculinity, and style."

Briquette is a good scarf is more than just a way to stay warm, itís part of the wearerís personality. Enter Briquette. This cozy long scarf features a highly textured stitch pattern thatís simple to knit, with an easy-to-follow chart and a pattern thatís memorizable, yet varied enough to keep you interested.  Itís perfect for men or women, and can be easily customized in width and length. Briquette works well in many different yarns, from a rugged semi-solid or tweedy wool for winter comfort, to a plant fiber blend for a breezier style.  The boxes stitch pattern is charted and written.

Char is a classic-looking glove designed for maximum durability.  Sock yarn and a textured slip stitch pattern create a strong fabric that remains sophisticated enough for daily wear.  Theyíre visually attractive without being too ornamental, and the slip stitch pattern is the perfect showcase for hand-dyed yarns.  A braided rib cuff keeps wrists snug and warm, while the left and right hands are worked differently for the best fit possible.  Simple but engaging stitch patterns and clear instructions make this a very accessible pattern.

Style, warmth and class combine in the Heartwood hat. Itís a surprisingly quick color work project with a subtle masculine edge.  The knitted-in hem and scroll color work pattern make it extra warm, while using a woolen spun yarn like Brooklyn Tweed Shelter keeps it lightweight.  Heartwood is knit from the bottom up, with full fashion decreases to create a square-shaped top. Itís also a great way to use up remainders of yarn.

Plantago was designed to the exact specifications of a Pacific Northwest outdoorsman who wanted practical, durable, winter wear.  Super bulky wool and tightly-knit ribbing create a very warm and insulating fabric.  Comfortable and practical, Plantago is slim-fitting with enough stretch in the fabric to give the wearer ease of movement.  The tall fold-over collar provides versatile warmth:  zip it up completely for a cowl collar, unzip it a bit to allow the collar to lay flat, or unzip completely to cool down.  Worked at a huge gauge, it knits up quickly and seamlessly, with easy raglan yoke shaping.

Resin is the perfect boot sock for active guys.  The socks knit up quickly, with a geometric stitch pattern that creates extra warmth, and a dense gauge in DK weight yarn that makes for great durability.  Theyíre simple but interesting to knit, with a engaging and easily memorized stitch pattern that excels at showing off hand-dyed yarn.  Resin is knit toe up with a short row heel, which means the height is customizable.  Use exactly half your yarn for socks that match perfectly.  The hemmed cuff provides a clean, comfortable top.

A great addition to a manís everyday wardrobe, the classically-styled Traverse cardigan features attractive color work that adds interest without being too loud.  The shawl collar creates a clean look with a cozy feel, and the raglan yoke provides a relaxed fit.  A yarn like Brooklyn Tweed Shelter makes for an extremely light-weight but warm sweater.  The color work is subtle and masculine, and designed to be conveniently worked all on the right side.  Traverse is knit bottom up seamlessly in the round, then steeked to open the cardigan front.  The shawl collar is picked up after steeking and worked with short row shaping.
