"ABOUT ISSUE 1
With Making Stories Magazine, we strive to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. We love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and companies they support.
In Issue 1, you’ll find thoughtful accessories and versatile garments that are designed with change in mind - change in seasons, in the way we work and live, in our choice of materials. We’re proud to be able to share the fantastic work of writers and visual artists with you with pieces that range from disability and knitting to body image, from queering the knitting status quo to what change means for our lives."

This Autumn we’re heading to the coast with our knitting. The patterns this issue are inspired by the sea, its surroundings, and its beautiful ever-changing shapes and textures.
The yarn palette draws from the many colours of the sea, as well as the soft shades of sand, shingle, and shells. Our designers have created a treasure chest of patterns: four jumpers, two wraps, a cardi, a tee, and a hat that will see you from high tide to low tide as the season shifts.
Featuring designs by
KIYOMI BURGIN // SACHIKO BURGIN // MEGHAN FERNANDES // ANNIE HAAS // SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA // EMMA DUCHER // INYOUNG KIM // KATRIN SCHUBERT // ANDREA CULL
Other contributions include poetry and images from Ocean Rose, musings on sailors’ knots and knitting from Clara Parkes, and an easy pickle recipe from Rebecca Lawrence to give you a taste of salty seas.
Yup. We do.
It’s an ever-increasingly digital world: people stare at little screens all day, with nothing to show for it when the power goes off.
More and more we are turning to traditional crafts to redress the balance, and for many, that means knitting.
I want to challenge the commonly held ‘misperception’ that knitting is a feminine pursuit – GUYS KNIT is a beginner’s guide to knitting, and it is aimed specifically at men.
So I set out to write a manual that a guy might notice in a shop, and think to himself: that’s a book that represents me, and who I am. I wanted to do that because I am a guy. I’ve always championed male knitters, and together, we can overthrow the ridiculous notion that guys don’t, or shouldn’t knit. We do. And we should.
So if you are that guy in the shop, holding this manual in your hand, let me answer the question you’ve probably been asking yourself since you picked it up:
Yes. Knitting is for you. And this is the manual to teach you.
• From zero knowledge to hero knitter
• Five specially designed patterns: three hats, one scarf, and a pair of socks
• Step-by-step tutorials – tonnes of supporting info
• Handy hints, tips, tricks and things to watch out for
• 25 online videos supporting all the tutorials in the manual
• Scan the QR code by each tutorial for direct access to the vids.
Let op: dit boek is Engelstalig!
