About making stories
making stories is an independent knitwear design publisher founded by Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haferkamp and based in Berlin.
Our mission is to promote independent knitwear designers from around the world and environmentally friendly yarn sources. We are, and love to collaborate with, small female run and feminist businesses who are transparent in their operations. Honesty and kindness are the cornerstones of both our public voice and internal spirit.
Are you a yarn company interested in partnering with us? A knitwear designer and you'd love to submit a design for our next publication? Or a knitter who would like to test knit for us?

We’re Verena and Hanna Lisa - two knitting enthusiasts and creative business owners who met through a joint passion for nature, natural fibers and lots of greys in this ever-elusive world of Instagram.
Verena is a force to be reckon with when it comes to knitwear design. Rooted in a love for nature, quiet, and stitch dictionaries, she creates patterns that have the perfect balance of being a tiny bit challenging while also being extremely fun to knit. Verena’s passion for natural fibers and dyeing have led to both amazing pattern collaborations as well as lots of avocado pits that wait to be turned into dye for beautiful yarn.
Hanna Lisa Haferkamp
Hanna Lisa is not only an avid knitter and badass creative boss herself running and co-running three labels, but she’s just as passionate about accompanying other makers on their journey to becoming creative bosses. With her coaching & consulting programs, she helps taking businesses to the next level and shares her valuable experience of going from COO to being self-employed with honesty and kindness.
