    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.


    We've successfully crowdfunded our first book WOODS (thank you!!!) which will be published in November 2017 and are currently working on the second one, BREEZE (coming April 2018).

  • About 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 Cohrs

    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.
