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.

Welcome to winter 2019, a collection of patterns inspired by terrain awaits you. The designs are a nod to the tactile and three-dimensional nature of knitwear, but also explorations of the deeper meanings of maps, journeys, and boundaries. The designers, yarn producers, and writers come from, have moved to, and have cultural roots in many different parts of the world. We hope that the stories that are woven into their words and designs will ground you at this busy time of year.
Featuring designs by
FIONA ALICE // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA // SARI NORDLUND // GERALDINE YANG // JUDITH BRAND // LOTTA H LÖTHGREN // NOMA NDLOVU // SARAH SOLOMON // CHRISTELLE BAGEA // CLAIRE WALLS
These designers are also joined by Sophia Cai, discussing the powerful meaning behind an important jumper project, Yukako Satone of Loop of the Loom with a unique mud-dyeing tutorial for a striking wall hanging, and sweet treats are provided by Kat Goldin with her twist on the chocolate classic rocky road.
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!
