Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs this issue were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential summer tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
There are also more pages to the magazine. This means more room for the gorgeous photography you love, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).
Featuring designs by
AMY CHRISTOFFERS // SARI NORDLUND // SORAYA GARCÍA // ISA CATEPILLÁN // CLARE LAKEWOOD // JOSÉE PAQUINE // MARJORIE MARTIN // RACHAEL REESE // STEPHANIE EARP
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating.
There also are yarn-free based projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, there is a project bag tutorial by artist Arrounna Khounnoraj, of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for her Maple Bourbon Fudge is an easy way to whip up an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
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!
