Amirisu is a Japanese quarterly that began life as a PDF magazine but, happily, has begun doing a print version. Small format, perfect-bound, nicely designed and photographed, and printed on extra-heavy uncoated paper, it's like the Japanese counterpart to Pom Pom — you'll be happy to have both on your shelves for a good long time. And each copy comes with a download code, so you get it in both print and digital format.
Issue 12 (Winter 2017) includes photos, essays and a crafters guide to Iceland, along with 9 knitting patterns: 5 pullovers, 1 cardigan, a matching colorwork hat and cowl, and a pair of socks
• SOLD OUT — Volume 11 (Fall/Winter 2016) is Evergreen-themed, and these are definitely patterns to knit from for a good long time. Includes 8 patterns: 2 pullovers, 1 cardigan, 1 vest, 1 skirt, 1 cowl, 1 shawl, 1 hat. Along with additional features and profiles.
• SOLD OUT — Volume 10 (Spring/Summer 2016) includes a crafter's guide to Nashville (intro by yours truly) along with 8 knitting patterns: 5 sweaters (a cardigan, a pullover, a tee and 2 tanks) and 3 shawls.
