Hali is one of the 11 modern, minimalist patterns featured in Issue 2 of Making Stories Magazine, available on October 29.

“Hali means a hug in Finnish, and the pullover is like a warm hug from a friend on a chilly day.

It’s a bit oversize so you can layer your clothes with a blouse and jeans and feel comfortable. The funnel neck gives the pullover a contemporary look even though the stitch pattern is quite timeless.

Can you see how the stitches are chained to each other – just like us?” - Leeni
