Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that would present knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way we’ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, we also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking ourselves too seriously!
Issue 41 (10th Anniversary issue)
You’re invited to Pompom's yarn party! Issue 41 marks their 10th birthday and they have a host of jubilant and celebratory designs which radiate all the joy they 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 Pompom's most collectable edition yet! Not only is this unique issue split into warm and cool patterns, they’ve 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 their page count to bring you even more Pom Pom! Over the last decade(!), Pompom have 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 – we’re sure these would make a statement centrepiece at any shindig. So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks and celebrate with Pompom!
