As autumn nights close in, we spend ever more time with the moon. Pom Pom Issue 26 features dreamy knits that call to mind moon phases, clear nights, lunar eclipses, and all that is beautiful and mystical about our piece of silver in the sky.
We asked our designers to go moon gazing, and so we bring you our lunar collection. Featuring sweaters, wraps, mitts and a hat, we know you’ll
find plenty to keep your fingers busy while you moonbathe. We have gone for a mix of rustic and ethereal yarns, and you’ll see a fair bit of mohair, silk, and blends that glow.
Our resident columnist Anna Maltz muses on the cycles of age and we take a behind the snowy scenes look at our shoot for Emily Foden’s Knits about Winter (coming soon in October). Emily also contributes to this issue with a how-to for her celestial garlands and you can ensure a full (moon) belly with Rebecca Lawrence’s pancake recipe.
We know you’ll love this issue to the moon and back!

Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents 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!
Since our kitchen table beginnings, we’ve gone on to feature some of the most well-known and loved independent designers and yarn producers, with some of the less well-known also growing along with us. We are so proud and lucky to be able to say that Pom Pom is now stocked at over 250 locally-owned yarn and craft stores across four continents and 20 countries. At Pom Pom we know that knitters are creative, curious people – so we also include lots of other features we think you’ll enjoy – from cocktail recipes, to dyeing tutorials, to articles about 18th century paper cut artists! Basically anything we think will inspire you. We also take pride in every detail of our magazine, from the typefaces we use right down to the paper we’re printed on – knitters are tactile people after all! We have always been, and continue to be, printed in the United Kingdom.
Pom Pom continues to grow, and we very much value each and everyone of you along with us on the journey! We are so excited about bringing you more thoughtful, beautiful, joyful, educational, and inspirational knitted (and crocheted!) goodness for a long time to come.
