In this Fall & Winter issue, we’re inviting you to come sit and knit with us while getting lost watching the flames of our campfire dance. 13 modern, wearable knitwear designs will keep us cozy and warm, not only around the fire, but also in our everyday adventures.
Texture, cables, colorwork or soothing stockinette – no matter which one speaks to you at the moment, you’ll find something you love in these pages. Speaking of love: The love for this planet and carefully caring for it while we’re out in nature is the thread that weaves through this issue’s essays and illustration.

Making Stories Magazine Issue 8 Projects:
Lisa - Orlina
Lisa knit her Orlina in Ginger Twist Studio's Masham Mayhem DK in Au Naturel. Here's what she said about the project: "Love the fit and the look of the finished sweater. Very classic, but with an interesting construction. The yarn is absolutely amazing, super soft and the most beautiful natural shade."
Caroline - Walden
Caroline used Mominoki Yarn Finnwool in Natural Grey for her Walden socks in size 2. Here's Caroline about her project: "These are time consuming but well worth it! The pattern is beautifully written. The Mominoki Yarn is rustic but lovely to knit with. After blocking, the yarn bloomed and softened. These socks are quite lovely."
Sophie - Amadou
Sophie knit Amadou in Maison Corlène's Corriedale DK, colorway Blodwyn. She shortened the body into a cropped shape - genius! Here's what she said about her project: "Loved this knit! Cables were lots of fun and easy to memorise once you’re in the flow and I really enjoyed the double knit technique in the pockets & collar."
Want to see the designs of Making Stories Magazine Issue 8 in action?
It’s not the first time I buy a making stories magazine and I love that I always discover new yarn and new designers. Photos are great and I definitely want to knit 3-4 designs of this issue :)
1st time reader
I only started knitting regularly this year and this is actually the first knitting 'magazine' I have purchased. I wanted to broaden my skills and love the fact this issue has a lot of smaller items to knit to help with my learning. I really like the ethos of this magazine as well.
