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 Spring 2006, this wonderful magazine is now published each March, June, September and December.
Brighten you world with our colour issue! Issue 4 covers colour theory, with hints and tips for creating your own handpainted yarn, and ideas for using the myriad options available in shops; a Q & A with Lucy Neatby; your ticket to the mad hatters ball that is the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. We also look at why you shouldn’t always pay the price for cheap yarn and, as always, there’s a palette of patterns for pretty knitting and colourful crochet, with a full complement of reviews, too.
