Pom Pom, yarn, and brown paper packages tied up with string – what do they all have in common? Yes, they are just some of our favourite things, but they also arrive on your doorstep because of those tiny bits of paper – stamps!

Issue 24 our contributors have designed their knits using a postage stamp as inspiration. Where possible, each design uses a yarn which originates from the same country as said stamp and these ten patterns are certainly something to write home about. Each stamp has been re-imagined by Elena Skoreyko Wagner and her playful paper cut illustrations are dotted around the knits and throughout the issue. 

You’ll also find our resident columnist Anna Maltz musing on the connection between stamps and knitting style, Meghan Fernandes exploring how snail mail links our long-distance knitting relationships, and artist Grace Chin explains her process as a paper artist. We also have a tasty pie recipe by Rebecca Lawrence – a perfectly portable parcel of comfort food.

We hope that these designs have your stamp of approval too!
