I think Wine is your only option.

While Knytt is open source, its engine, Clickteam Fusion, apparently still doesn't support Linux.

There's something called Chowdren that can convert Clickteam Fusion sources into C++ and make them compatible with platforms like Linux, but it doesn't support anywhere near all extensions, so it may not be able to handle Knytt.

... still there's a problem when trying to create a new level in KS Level-editor. Message: "error: file corrupt"  :/

You're referring to the Knytt Stories editor, right? If so, my KSJava Editor should work okay on Linux (requires Java 1.5 or later), but it's not widely tested. I also recall someone else having the same problem with the official editor, and they found another workaround, but unfortunately I can't find that thread
