Making Stories - Issue 4 is an invitation to take a look at the craft we all 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.

What’s special about Making Stories Magazine?
Making Stories Magazine strives to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. They love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.
They’re (to our knowledge) the only ad-free knitting magazine on the market today. They believe in preserving their independence when it comes to deciding who they feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine.
