Hi, I’m Janina Kallio. At my knit studio in Helsinki, Finland, I design knitting patterns inspired by nature and its changing seasons.
I favour clean lines and sophisticated simplicity in my design work. Designing beautiful knits by combining simple elements is my superpower.
Knitting is a way to relax, slow down and indulge in me-time. I want my knitting to be meditative, carefree and fun. And I definitely want to end up with something I’ll actually wear.
In 2013 I shared my first knitting patterns with other makers on Ravelry. Soon more patterns followed, and since then thousands of knitters around the world have been growing their handmade wardrobes with my patterns. Sometimes I still can’t believe that playing with yarn and needles is my full-time job and I have to pinch myself.
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 how to write the instructions as clear and concise as possible.
Each pattern is crafted with care and attention to detail. They include complete and clear instructions, beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and professional photos.
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 so thankful for the amazing community of knitters around the world. Your support, inspiration and encouragement keeps me going. Together, we’re making the world a happier and cosier place, stitch by stitch.
