As we’re moving into our 10th issue, we’d love to explore a theme with you that is at the very heart of Making Stories: To make something we’ll love and wear for years to come.
Put into one word: Heirloom.
Our designers drew inspiration from beloved heirlooms that were passed down to you or by the things they cannot wait to wear over and over again.
With Making Stories Magazine, we strive to create wearable collections of knitwear that you’ll love and wear for years and years to come. The yarns we feature are all produced with utmost care for our planet and its inhabitants, be they human or non-human. We hope to inspire you to make conscious and informed decisions about what you make, with which materials, and with a lot of joy in your heart.

The patterns in this issue are a representation of hard and soft duality in the American West. The hard work embedded in the people of Montana is a result of the softness you find in the spirit of indigenous homelands. You will find classic designs that can be worn in utilitarian ways but also jazzed up a bit for social outings.
