Making Magazine is a triumphant bi-annual craft magazine for makers: KNIT • SEW • QUILT • EMBROIDER • WEAVE • CROCHET • RECIPES + MORE
Issue No. 7 / DESERT includes 9 original knitting patterns by Julie Weisenberger, Amy van de Laar, Paula Pereira, Fiona Alice Blanchard, Norah Gaughan, Susan B. Anderson, Helga Isager, Bristol Ivy, and Carrie Bostick Hoge. These as well as over a dozen other handcrafting projects are pictured above, and while detailed yarn and needle requirements are listed here on Ravelry, the full patterns are only available in this hard copy publication.
Urban Yarns also carries the Cocoknits Leather Handle Kit for the Knitted 4-Corner Bags pattern in this issue.
"Each year we spend time in various locations photographing the different collections found in Making. With every destination comes a rich history, one full of biodiversity, landscape, craft, and the Indigenous people that first cared for the land and have done so for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years.
A Land Acknowledgment is a formal statement that gives recognition and respect to the Indigenous peoples as traditional stewards of the land.
We’ve also compiled a list of books, links, and other resources that we’ve found helpful in our learning. We encourage you to explore these and learn more about the tribes, land, and history of where you live and travel."
