    Who we are

    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.


    What we do

    our publicat-ions

    We love providing a platform for sustainably, ethically and environmentally-friendly produced yarns as well as independent knitwear designers.

    To date, we've published two books in our European Nature series, focusing on yarns produced in Europe: WOODS (Fall & Winter 2017) and BREEZE (Spring & Summer 2018).

    We've also published a digital collection of sock patterns using non-superwash no nylon yarns: SOCKS 2018.


    We'd love to chat!
