Yarn magazine began via a group of knitters at a pub in Adelaide, SA. As Barbara Coddington, the original editor said, “As knitters and crafters we like to have a yarn as much as we like to play with the stuff, so making a magazine that is smart and fun to read and explore throughout – not just in the patterns section – was essential. We think of it as ‘craft journalism’, rather than simply pretty things to make (although that is important too).”
Yarn is filled with many different techniques of playing with yarns and fibres, as well as instructional, inspirational and just plain fun articles.
You will find knitting, crochet, felting, spinning, weaving, travel, and so much more in this magazine.
Having begun in Adelaide, Yarn is still an Australian magazine, created here in Australia, and read worldwide.

Published March 2006, this wonderful magazine is now published each March, June, September and December.
There’s nothing quite like the comforts of knitting and crochet. Shawls are perhaps the ultimate example of this: they can be as elaborate and absorbing as you want them to be, or they can be simple and straightforward – the perfect project for cosying up in front of the TV and a good movie.
Here we offer three shawls and variations on each, for beginners through to those looking for something more challenging. Writer Anne Bartlett (Knitting) offers her thoughts on the spiritual nourishment of prayer shawls, and we also cover the technical side; how to read lace charts and how to block lace knitting; so you can see your shawls through to a fine finish.
Issue 2 also touches on the gold you can uncover in your own stash, how to substitute when you love a pattern but can’t lay your hands on the right yarn, and a photo feature on finding just the right closure for your shawls, wraps and stoles.
As well you can find plenty of news, considered reviews and beautiful patterns for beautiful knits. (Don’t miss our felted bunnies!)
