Pom Pom is a quarterly, collectable publication based in London, UK for smart, creative types who like knitting patterns with a modern aesthetic, great photography and interesting writing. They’re also into lots of other types of crafts and of course music, fashion, art, food and just generally making the world a little more beautiful with the things we make!
Info on the latest issue (27) - on pre-order until 17 November:
Pompom is honoured to collaborate with Norah Gaughan as their winter issue guest editor, and nothing could have prepared them for the beauty and drama of the results. Taking the idea of tough Victoriana, the traditional notion of a delicate lady surrounded by flowers is transformed into a warrior woman of strength and resilience.
The knits in this issue are imagined for the modern heroine. Create your own knitted armour with swirling cables and sculptural stitch details; it’s time to celebrate texture and sumptuous colours!
The stellar lineup curated by Norah, including the designer herself, features:
ANDREA RANGEL // BOADICEA BINNERTS // CAITLIN HUNTER // CIRILIA ROSE // HONOR ADAMS // JOJI LOCATELLI // LINDA MARVENG // VÉRONIK AVERY // XANDY PETERS
Also packed into this winter issue is a column by resident columnist Anna Maltz exploring knitting beyond traditions, a Q&A session with Norah, and a recipe for a braided challah bread – just as comforting and squishy as knitted cables.
Pom Pom was set up in 2012 by Lydia Gluck and Meghan Fernandes. They knew (like you probably did!) that knitting is super-cool, but felt that based on the way it was presented in the media, it didn’t always look super-cool to the naked eye. So backed by their amazingly talented army of friends who also happen to be designers, writers, photographers and all-around wonderful people, they got started making a magazine, hoping to present knitting and craft in the best possible light!
