As you may already know, our mission at Making Stories is to spread the love for sustainably, ethically and transparently produced natural yarns, shine a light on knitwear designers from around the world and help knitters create garments and accessories they love and that last them for a long time.
We deeply care about our planet and our community. Honesty and kindness are the cornerstones of everything we do. We believe everyone can (and should) make a difference in whatever way, shape or form they can.
With this in mind, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that we are releasing a monthly blog series called Making Stories Unravelled, in which we will be delving into and transparently sharing our own processes.
As we strive to tell the stories of the people who enable and inspire our making within our publications, we now want to turn the spotlight this way.
This series will illustrate how everyone who contributes to Making Stories works together. By talking about our structures, and showing why we work the way we do, we hope to give more of a holistic understanding and insight into the depths of Making Stories, to our readers as well as our current and future designers, yarn partners, test knitters and team members.
We also hope that this series will encourage people from all aspects of making to look at their own processes and inspire them to make changes that will increase transparency and sustainability within our international making community.
We will cover topics such as what was involved in establishing Making Stories, how we work today and why, what we look at when choosing designs, designers and yarn partners for Making Stories, how we work with our contributors and how we strive to eliminate unfairness and biases in remuneration
Next month, we will discuss the very beginning! We will discover how Hanna Lisa and Verena met and why they decided to start Making Stories. Make sure you are signed up to our newsletter so you don't miss a thing.

We can't wait to share all the upcoming articles with you!
Hi lovelies! I kind of completely dropped the ball on putting FO posts out there, but as you all very kindly let me know through our "what do you want to read on the blog" survey, you actually really like them, so we have some catching up to do!
We're starting with two FOs that have actually quite recently only been finished – if by recently we mean the end of 2023. They're both from Issue 10, and were both a delight to knit!
Hi lovelies! I am so delighted to welcome our second double-digit magazine issue into the Making Stories family: Issue 11, Seashore! Our Spring 2024 issue features 12 wonderful, layerable, delightful-to-knit patterns that are fabulous on beach days, a stroll through the park, or a day out with the kids.
We also welcome Liza Laird with a beautiful poem about our relationship to the ocean to our pages.
Hi lovelies! I adore a good color-changing yarn, so imagine my excitement when I found a non-superwash, 100% wool version (not so easy to come by)! Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle comes in at 250 m / 273 yds per 100 g and knits up beautifully to a fingering-weight, sport-weight and DK gauge.
We're a delightfully tiny team dedicated to all things sustainability in knitting. With our online shop filled with responsibly produced yarns, notions and patterns we're here to help you create a wardrobe filled with knits you'll love and wear for years to come.
