Spring is just around the corner to reinvigorate us with longer days and buds bursting forth. We’re welcoming sweet spring breezes with our first theme of the new decade – air.
This precious and fragile element unites us, and our designers translated this ethereal concept into tangible knits and crochet. Each pattern captures the spaces between the stitches, with gauzy mohairs, modern lace, and airy open textures.
Featuring designs by:
AMALIA SIEBER // BRONTË SWANNICK // CAMILA LARSEN ESVEILE // JOJI LOCATELLI // LANA JOIS // MARA LICOLE TAYLOR // MEGHAN FERNANDES // NATALIYA SINELSHCHIKOVA // ROSEMARY (ROMI) HILL // WENCKE PETERMANN
For art direction and styling, we collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Ocean Rose to capture this collection of atmospheric patterns. Ocean also lends their talents for a how-to on flower arranging so you can create your own welcome to spring with a floating botanical decoration. Your taste buds will be catered for by Kat Goldin’s meringue recipe, and finally we have an interview with body-positive activist and designer Jacqueline Cieslack.
"Pause, take a deep breath and find your space this spring."
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!
