Making Stories Magazine No. 8 - Campfire
Making Stories Magazine is a German magazine (but published in English) that aims to showcase companies and makers who centre their work around sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity, tell their stories, educate and inspire crafters and enable them to make informed decisions.
Making Stories shares scenes that tell not just one story, knitwear that is shown on more than one body type, pieces that are being worn as we’d wear them in our everyday life. It publishes pieces from a diverse range of voices, is interested in exploring and learning from different perspectives and strengthening our community.
In this Autumn/Winter issue Making Stories invites us to come and sit and knit together while getting lost watching the dancing flames of a campfire. 13 modern, wearable knitwear designs will keep us cosy and warm, not only around the fire but also in our everyday adventures.
Texture, cables, colourwork or soothing stocking stitch - no matter which one speaks to you at the moment, you will find something you love in these pages. Speaking of love: the love for this planet and carefully caring for it while we are out in nature is the thread that weaves through this issue's essays and illustrations.
Patterns by: Agata Mackiewicz, Audrey Borrego, Barbara Gottwik, Eimear Earley, Elena Solier Jansa, Elizabeth Nihoniho, Fabienne Gassmann, Hanna Maciejewska, Mara Licole Taylor, Marie Régnier, Natalie Sheldon, Susan Schädler, Thien-Kieu Lam
