Contemporary style that’s entertaining and effortless to knit

Knit beautiful shawls and sweaters that you’ll actually want to wear – and enjoy every single stitch in the process. 

Woolenberry knitting patterns are designed for the modern knitter who enjoys natural fibres and sophisticated design.

Hi, I’m Janina Kallio. I love creating simple and beautiful knitting patterns almost as much as I love a good gin & tonic (Hendrick’s with cucumber and a dash of black pepper, please).

At my knit studio in Helsinki, Finland, I create patterns for modern knitters. My superpower is designing beautiful knits by combining simple elements.

I believe that knitting is a wonderful way to slow down and make something tangible in this fast paced digital world.

Since 2013, thousands of knitters around the world have been growing their handmade wardrobes with my patterns.

My signature style focuses on clean lines and sophisticated simplicity.

I love the entire process of designing. From coming up with ideas and sketching them in my ever-growing stack of notebooks, to crunching the numbers and figuring out the best way to write the instructions as clear and easy to follow as possible.

Sometimes I still can’t believe that playing with yarn and needles is my full-time job and I have to pinch myself.

I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with some of the dreamiest yarn brands, like The Fibre Co., Blacker Yarns, Miss Babs, Eden Cottage Yarns, Cardiff Cashmere, Tukuwool, DyeForYarn and Manos del Uruguay.

I’m constantly inspired by the amazing community of knitters around the world. Together, we’re making the world a happier place, stitch by stitch.

Ready to knit beautiful shawls you’ll actually want to wear? I can help with that. Find your next project to cast on here. Happy knitting!
