Keep us warm on cold, dark winter days when summer is only a memory, a whisper in my ear.

Issue 4 draws inspiration from stormy seas and deep blue skies. From white, pure snow, the Nordic sun under our feet during the darkest time of the year. From the biting cold that turns our cheeks red and forms ice crystals on our eyelashes. And from the silent promise of spring, when light wins over darkness, just like it always does.

What thoughts do our words evoke in you? We would love to see your designs. We are looking for knitted garments and accessories for adults using wool, natural colours and designs that embody a casual and easy-going way of life.

DEADLINE The submission call ends August 9. Those whose patterns have been selected for issue 4 will be notified by August 13. Finished samples must be delivered by October 30. Finished, test knitted patterns are due to December 4. Issue 4 out February 2018.
