Making Stories Magazine Issue 6


About Issue 6

Theme: Skyward

In Issue 6, we’re taking a look upward and beyond as a gentle reminder to not forget to look skyward, to see the beauty above, to take a breath of fresh air.

The 12 knitting patterns we’re so excited to share with you are inspired by everything we see when we take our eyes off the ground – the sky, the clouds, the buildings, the trees, the texture, the light. They’re complemented by the works of our artists and writers who remind us to stay present and connected, no matter where we are and what we see.

Designs by:

Audrey Borrego, Ayano Tanaka, Elena Solier Jansà, Emily Joy Rickard, Fiona Alice, Julia Exner, Kjerstin Rovetta, Ksenia Naidyon, Makenzie Alvarez, Susan Schädler, Valentina Cosciani

Wonderful issue and patterns I can't wait to knit. I am about to cast on the Growing Ivy scarf in cream and mustard.

Review of Issue 6

What a little gem of a book. Bought digital- and casted on straight away. I will certainly be considering buying again

So Many Nice Patterns

I really enjoyed issue 6 - the first time I've tried this magazine because the price was so good. I also enjoy the podcast and the winter fun we all had together. Great publication. High quality paper. Good designers.
