Making Stories Magazine Issue 7

7 total reviews


Theme: Joy

In Issue 7, we’re focusing on joy – finding joy in the small and big things in life, in a new discovery or a renewed love, in knowing that even the smallest changes can have a huge impact on sustainability and the planet.

The 12 stunning patterns our designers created all represent something that makes the designer truly happy. They’re love letters to a favorite technique, stitch pattern, garment or accessory type, shape, or color – same as the essays we’re so happy to share are love letters to finding joy in stitches and reclaiming what others deem is waste.

Making Stories Magazine Issue 7

Monika Frese
Excellent Knitting Magazin

Love your homepage!!! Especially I really appreciate your professional, very well reasoned articles about yarn substitutions, choosing colours online …. and so on. Thank you!!!

Maureen M Lewicki
Even more beautiful

I had seen a preview of this issue online and had downloaded the digital but Oh, when the print copy arrived I was so impressed. Lovely, well written patterns and stories.

Fanlight Sweater

I absolutely love this sweater. The colours are perfect (it gets so many compliments!) the yarn is perfect - lightweight but warm, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. Thank you!

What a lovely issue

As always the layout and feel of the magazine are second to none. It’s curation of pattern variety (again) not only spans styles but also levels of complexity.
And can we please give a shout out to the effort of bringing not only an add free magazine into the world but also with 'easy read‘ trying to make the patterns as accessible as possible?! Chapeau to Hanna-Lisa, Claire and the entire team, keep on doing what you’re doing!!!
