amirisu is a print and online magazine that launched in August, 2012. The founders, Tokuko and Meri, met through Ravelry in 2011, and decided to start a magazine together after a few lunches and a few cups of coffee. They were both frustrated by lack of modern and elegant knitwear patterns that they can actually wear to work, and thought that knitters in other countries, not just in Japan, had the same frustration. Thus born the bilingual knitting magazine, amirisu.
Amirisu - Issue 22 Spring / Summer 2021
Inspired by layers, this issue features twelve knitwear designs created by some of our most favorite designers from Japan and abroad.
Participating Designers: Fiona Alice / Trine Bertelsen / Sari Nordlund / Kate Gagnon Osborn / Ririko / eri shimizu / Nataliya Sinelshchikova / Orlane Sucche / Dianna Walla / amirisu
We are excited to feature a craft guide to the main island of Okinawa in this issue and, as travel continues to be a distant dream for most around the world, we hope that reading it will be a sort of journey in itself.
International tourists will likely continue to be unable to enter Japan for some time, but we hope our recommendations can be a source of inspiration for the future when the international situation has improved.
Feature: Colors of Okinawa
In our craft guide to Okinawa, encounter two fascinating textile traditions and get inspiration for a future trip with our recommendations for museums, textile workshops, and pottery galleries on the island.
Plus a project from Lori Ann Graham, virtual events and content to enjoy from anywhere, a needle felt project, and more.
