Abloom Cardigan | Anne Ginger | Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool
Abloom is the perfect layering piece for transitional seasons, designed to be lightweight yet still cosy enough to ward off the early morning or evening chill.
Inspired by the delicate beauty of spring and the early flowers, small and ethereal, almost wispy, the rib nature of the stitch pattern allows the fabric to move with the body, thus fitting a wide range of body sizes.
For this cardigan, we're bringing back Biches et Bûches Le Petit Lambswool, a 100% Scottish lambswool yarn that's delightful to knit and wear.
Bouquet Sweater | Maria Magnusson | The Fibre Co. Cumbria
Bouquet is the kind of sweater that's effortless to wear and works with everything, and also gets compliments left, right and center.
It's central lace motif, inspired by the blooming flower beds in the designer's garden, is worked up in a heavier-than-usual-yarn for lace patterns, making it a rhythmic, enjoyable knit.
I am so delighted that we get to add The Fibre Co.'s Cumbriato our yarn lineup for this release!
Cumbria is a classic, worsted-weight yarn that knits up with a lovely crisp stitch definition and next-to-skin softness. It combines South American Merino for softness, English Masham wool for warmth, and Argentinian Mohair for lustre and strength.
Circle of Life Sweater | Julia Exner | Holst Garn Supersoft
Circle of Life is inspired by life awakening again in the spring - the first tips of the hyacinths breaking out of the ground, the buds on the trees getting bigger and bigger.
The comfortable circular yoke sweater features stranded colorwork, Roosimine, and lace, with each section of the yoke representing one stage in the life of a plant.
We're so delighted that we're able to add Holst Garn to our products, starting with their super star Supersoft!
Supersoft is a classic non-superwash yarn that's perfect for colorwork. It's a blend of 50% Merino and 50% Shetland, making it both soft and durable. Hold it single for a delicate fabric or double to create a DK-weight yarn.
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.
