Amirisu, Issue 24.

A new issue of Amirisu is here!

Amirisu is a knitting magazine based in Japan, each issue filled with articles, interviews, and patterns from designers all over the world.

Rosemary Hill, Dianna Walla, Sari Nordlund, Yamagara, and others have contributed to this issue, designing garments and accessories inspired by inheritance – important places or things passed down culturally or within their families.


I spotted some familiar fibers in this issue – colorwork sweaters in Brooklyn Tweed Loft and Shelter, a unique brioche shawl vest in Isager Highland Wool, and a richly textured cowl in Brooklyn Tweed Peerie.

Amirisu often includes tutorials and essays on crafts other than knitting, and this issue has a quilted tote, a profile of a ceramics artist, and a crafter’s travel guide to Toronto.

Amirisu is $24 – swing by to pick up a copy or order online for local pickup or shipping!

Making No. 11: Dawn.

Yamagara’s “Chorus Wrap” is knit with Isager Spinni in 5 shades, its short row sections inspired by feathers.
