meet merina

meet Merina, our talented Finnish knitwear and crochet designer, who joined the paper stories team earlier this year. brought up in a culture where yarn crafts should be practiced and celebrated from a young age, Merina learnt to crochet at the age of 9.


it was as a teen that Merina really found her passion for knit and crochet, when she borrowed yarn from her mum's stash and finding joy in making her own garments.


initially studying Fashion Design in Finland, Merina moved to the UK to achieve her masters in Knitwear Design and has been creating, knitting, crocheting and obsessing over all things yarn ever since!


Merina often combines knit & crochet in her designs to create pieces that are refreshingly unconventional and modern. if you want to see some of Merina's creations, be sure to check out her Instagram page @merinapelander. get ready to be inspired by her original patterns and stunning designs.
