    Theme: Subverting the Norm

    Issue 4 is an invitation to take a look at the craft we love and share as a way of challenging the status quo, changing standards that no longer serve us, and, yes, subverting the norm. 

    In its pages you’ll find accessory and garment patterns that do just that by introducing us to a new technique, a unique construction method, a brave design inspiration. Stories about body image, size inclusivity, and queer identity, shared by a handful of wonderful authors and illustrators, invite you to sit down, read, and question.

    Yes, we do print sustainably.

    We print on 100% recycled paper – and we are super proud to have found one that lets our photos and patterns shine!

    They're crisp and true to their original colors. The secret? Our awesome printer, Königsdruck Berlin (local to us, yay!)

    They work with an LED-offset printing machine that dries the ink right after it's applied to the paper. That way, it can't sink in and the colors stay as glowy and beautiful as possible.

    The best part though? The machine is completely climate-neutral.

    We're the ones who care.

    We started Making Stories because we deeply believe in the power of two things: sustainability and knitting.

    Stitching sustainability into every aspect of life (and business) can not only help us save this beautiful planet, but also lead a more fulfilling life.

    That being said, we believe sustainability looks different for everyone. Finding what exactly it means for you and making decisions that reflect that in your daily life is incredibly empowering.

    We're here to help you with that in your favorite pastime, knitting.

    Love the Concept and the Patterns!

    I truly enjoy the compilation of storytelling with the patterns. I think creating anything is meditative and the articles give me insight into the pattern designer and their design - as well as give me something to contemplate while making the project. It is a wonderful concept and beautifully presented!
