Issue 41 Summer 2022: 10th Anniversary Issue
Issue 41 marks their 10th birthday and they have a host of jubilant and celebratory designs which radiate all the joy we feel on this landmark occasion!
This rare bumper edition of Pom Pom Quarterly contains 13 designs for warm and cool climes, so no matter where you live in the world, there’s handmade party outfits aplenty within its pages.
This is the most collectable edition yet! Not only is this unique issue split into warm and cool patterns, but we’ve also gone all out with a flip double cover. This is also the first issue printed in their new larger format!
Expect lush photographic spreads and more room for patterns – something you’ve told them they could work on! They’ve also permanently increased our page count to bring you, even more, Pom Pom!
Over the last decade(!), Pom Pom has had the absolute honour of working with some of the most creative and inspirational people in the fibre world, and they invited a handful of them to contribute to this extraordinary summer collection!
Featuring designs by: ISA CATEPILLÁN // SARI NORDLUND // INYOUNG KIM // MARIE RÉGNIER // GINA FAMA RÖCKENWAGNER // DAWN HENDERSON // AMALIA SIEBER // XANDY PETERS // SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // KIYOMI + SACHIKO BURGIN // JAMES N WATTS // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA
What’s more, Issue 41 comes complete with party favours in the form of two articles and a recipe! Atsushi Futatsuya writes about cultural appropriation and the practice of Sashiko, and Atia Azmi’s ‘A Crafter’s Guide to London’ is a wonderful tribute to the vibrant city in which Pom Pom was founded.
Dee Omole shares her recipe for the most stunning white chocolate madeleines we’ve ever seen – they’re sure these would make a statement centrepiece at any shindig.
So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks and celebrate with us!
Note: This is a pre-order. The official release date is Tuesday, May 31.
Issue 40 Spring 2022: Dreamscape
For our 40th issue we’ve concocted a knitted dreamworld! Allow our latest collection to transport you to your yarn-filled happy place with joy-bringing patterns which are whimsical without compromising elegance or wearability.
The designs reference the seemingly unstructured nature of dreams through floaty fabrics and ethereal embellishments, loose gauge, and by gently emboldening the maker to use their intuition when it comes to playing with colour.
Featuring designs by: Aimee Sher // Allison Lutes // Edda Lilja Guðmundsdóttir // Hanna Lübben // Julie Dubreux // Marie Régnier // Marzena Kołaczek // Pope Vergara // Reed Keyes.
In addition to the 10 knitting patterns, our spring 2022 collection contains an article, ‘Making a World’ by lilith green, in which lilith talks about her experience of autism and how the act of making provides a haven from a world that prioritizes neurotypical people.
If your goal is to try your hand at a craft other than knitting, learn how to make decorative Polish pająki with Karolina Merska, or use Stephanie Ganz’ recipe to bake Honeysuckle Cream Puffs – divine!
Issue 39 Winter 2021:The Rhythm Issue
The knit and crochet designs in Issue 39 are inspired by rhythm! Our Winter 2021 collection is packed with patterns which honour echoes, explore semitonal shifts in colour, and include repeating motifs to allow you to get into a stitching groove.
We love how the designers have taken our auditory theme and created patterns which highlight the aspects of rhythm we see, such as written musical scores and the visual representation of soundwaves. No matter at what tempo you craft, there’s a winter project for you here!
Featuring designs by: JUDITH BRAND, ASTRID COLDING SIVERTSEN, ADELLA DUTRA, ANA D, TETYANA VYAZOVSKA, JOHANNA KUNIN, NIDHI KANSAL, KEIKO KIKUNO, CLEO MALONE, VALERIE NG
Artist, maker and stylist Lydia Morrow was the creative director for this issue’s photoshoot!
We’ve long admired Lydia’s jazzy sense of style, so we’re honoured to publish her vision on our pages. After you’ve found your crafting cadence, enjoy the two articles in Issue 39.
In ‘Rhythms of Handiwork’, Felicity (Felix) Ford explores the communal and historical relationship between craft and rhythm, while Claudia Khan writes touchingly about the delicate melody of parenthood, partnership, and time in her article, ‘A Family Song’. Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin are the authors of this issue’s handmade lip balm tutorial, so you can combat chapped lips brought on by cold weather and even have some non-knitted handmade gifts ready for the festive season.
Issue 38 Autumn 2021: Roots & Branches
Our Autumn 2021 collection celebrates trees: their roots, branches, and everything in-between. In our 38th issue, you can look forward to luscious cable patterns which mimic labyrinths of roots and statuesque boughs, clever colourwork and textures designed to imitate oft-overlooked plantlife, and patterns which reference the enchanted forests of fairy tales.
Autumn is a transitional season, so alongside trusty pullovers and cardigans, you’ll find accessories which are perfect for furling in your coat pocket or rucksack for when the weather takes a chilly turn.
Featuring designs by: ANNA HUSEMANN, AUDREY BORREGO, CATHERINE CLARK, DENISE OTTER, REED KEYES, HEIDI KÄSTNER, TYRA SMITH, YIĞITCAN VATANSEVER & ZANETE HUSSAIN
Burrow down into Issue 38 and you’ll find two articles, a tutorial, and a recipe in addition to nine knit and crochet patterns!
Dawn Henderson invites us to introduce magick into our handicrafts by sharing her experiences of Hoodoo (or African American rootwork). Drawing on her expertise in microplastics, Tereza Pavlíková raises important questions about the textile industry and pollution, and Caitlin Ffrench demonstrates how you can make charcoal and ink from dried plant material!
Issue 38’s knit and crochet garments will keep you toasty from the outside, but Fi Churchman’s ginger pudding recipe will warm you from within!
