Issue 5 of this beautiful magazine explores the hidden qualities of plants and nature to shed a light on the essential role they have for us and the planet.
The 12 knitwear designs we’re so proud to feature in this issue celebrate nature in all its glorious ways through texture, shape and form – as do our artists and writers who dive deep into the connection between nature and making in their works.
Featuring patterns from:
Dana Kikic, Ksenia Naidyon, Heidi Reszies, Madeleine Renarde, Courtney Spainhower, Jennifer Brou, Barbara Gottwik, Audrey Borrego, Joan Forgione, Thien-Kieu Lam, Fiona Alice, and Marianne Munier.
Making Stories Magazine strives to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work.
