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. Designing beautiful knits by combining simple elements is my superpower.

At my knit studio in Helsinki, Finland, I design patterns for modern knitters.

I focus on clean lines and sophisticated simplicity in my design work.

Knitting is a wonderful way to relax and slow down. It empowers us to explore our creativity and make something tangible in this fast paced digital world.

I love the entire process of designing, from coming up with ideas and sketching them in my numerous notebooks, to crunching the numbers and figuring out the best way to write the instructions as clear and concise 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.

Simple and beautiful knitting patterns from Woolenberry

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

I’ve had the privilege of working 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.

I hope you find inspiration on these pages and perhaps even your next project to cast on. Happy knitting!
