LAINE Issue 20

Laine is a high-quality Nordic knit & lifestyle magazine for knit folks. We cherish natural fibers, slow living, local craftsmanship and beautiful, simple things in life. Our intention is to inspire you to gather and share, to be part of a community of like-minded knitters, makers and thinkers from near and far. Knitting is more than just knit, knit, purl. It is a feeling.

Issue 20, Spring 2024, includes:

  • 140 pages
  • 10 knitting patterns (both charts and written instructions provided): 5 sweaters, 1 cardigan, 1 tee, 2 shawls and 1 pair of socks.
  • An interview with the Finnish knitwear designer Jenny Ansah who wants to bring a stronger sense of community to the world of handicrafts.
  • The results of our first-ever Laine Knitting Survey, with 4,433 responses from knitters from all over the world. Read what knitting looks like in the 2020s and how knitters hope to see it evolve!
  • Jeanette Sloan’s Fibre Talk: A regular article on Jeanette chatting with interesting people. In this issue, she meets Maria Zeb Benjamin from The Wool Library, a grassroots organisation that celebrates British wool.
  • Five Ways by our regular writer Päivi Kankaro, who explores how artificial intelligence might change knitting in the future.
  • Where I Knit: A regular piece that pictures people knitting in their favourite spot. In this issue, we meet Sascha Faxe, a Danish MP who likes to knit in Parliament meetings.
  • Seasonal recipes to inspire your spring cooking.
