LAINE Issue 21

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 21, Summer 2024, includes: 

  • 148 pages 

  • 11 knitting patterns (both charts and written instructions provided): 4 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 2 tops, 2 shawls and 1 pair of socks 

  • an interview with Kendall Ross (@id.knit.that), who has turned her knitting into a unique art form. Kendall’s wearable art pieces draw inspiration from her experiences as a young American woman. 

  • an article about the Irish knitting education initiative Wool in School, which is committed to increasing awareness of wool and teaching children to fall in love with knitting 

  • Jeanette Sloan’s column Fibre Talk, where she chats with April Tang, the co-founder of Shangdrok, a Taiwanese/Tibetan company specialising in traditional hand-spun yarn and handmade felt 

  • Five Ways by our regular writer Päivi Kankaro, where we learn about the not-so-hidden power of colours and how to use them in our knitting projects
