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.
