Yarn Magazine is an independent quarterly publication from Australia for the international community of fibre fans. We’re a reader’s magazine — we aim to bring you great writing along with your patterns, and we also encourage readers to get involved by writing to and for the magazine, and submitting designs as well.

Yarn features not only knitting but also crochet, felting, and dyeing, with spinning as an upcoming focus. At Yarn we pride ourselves on beautiful photography, excellent writing and patterns that inspire crafters to learn, think and, most of all, have fun.

Recent issue themes have included socks, shawls, colour, great knit lit and reading lists from great writers, and cool fibres for warm- climate creativity. We also give readers direct access to their favourite writers and designers with our signature Q&As. Lately we’ve talked with Cat Bordhi (“Magical Knitting”), Lucy Neatby (“Cool Socks, Warm Feet”) and Mel Clark (“Knit 2 Together”).

Editor and publisher Barbara Coddington spent many years working in the magazine industry in New York. Among the publications she’s worked for are Rolling Stone and Billboard. Her experience brings a different perspective to knitting and helps make Yarn an international magazine of choice.
