Knit your bliss with effortless knitting patterns
In a world fixated on endless productivity and constant hustle, making time for yourself and your creativity is the most revolutionary act of self-love.
Knitting is more than a craft, it’s a deliberate and purposeful escape, an intentional pause.
What matters is your audacity to create, not your skill level.
You don’t need anyone’s permission to take time for yourself and, for once, put yourself first. The only one who can give you that permission is you.
Permission to be messy, imperfect and unapologetically unproductive.
If you’re willing to put pleasure over productivity, you’re in the right place.
Woolenberry knitting patterns redefine the knitting experience, offering simplicity and clarity with no guesswork required. The result? Effortless knitting that feels like a luxurious indulgence.
Hi, I’m Janina Kallio.
I enjoy knitting almost as much as a good gin & tonic (Hendrick’s with cucumber and a dash of black pepper, please). The combination of the two? Pure knitting bliss!
By the Baltic Sea in Helsinki, Finland, I create patterns for modern knitters. My superpower is designing effortless knits with clear and easy-to-follow instructions. The best of the best, some knitters say.
Knitting is a bold act of slowing down and making something tangible in this fast paced digital world. It’s the perfect antidote to the hustle and grind.
Since 2012, thousands of knitters around the world have been indulging in deliciously decadent knitting bliss with my patterns.
