The latest issue of Making Stories has landed in space, with plenty of projects and articles to inspire you. The theme for this issue is Subverting the Norm. From the creators:
“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.”
This issue contains:
- 10 knitting patterns: 3 shawls, 2 hats, 4 sweaters, and a pair of socks. Click here to preview all the patterns on Ravelry.
This issue features the simple, classic design style that we love from Making Stories, but each of these patterns has little details that make them stand out. Here are our favorite pattern picks and yarn suggestions:
This reversible hat features a simple stockinette background on one side, and an open, lacy pattern on the other. Wear whichever way the mood strikes you!
A delicate lace repeat comes to life with pops of color on the edges of this unique shawl shape.
Yarn suggestion: Myak Tibetan Cloud
Simple colorwork details on the yoke and hems of this pullover elevate this comfy pullover.
