ISSUE 32 - Spring 2020
As always, the yarns used in these patterns are perfect for substitutions - we would be more than happy to help make recommendations (yarn is our thing :) )
Welcome to Issue 32, our Spring 2020 collection which is inspired by the concept of air! The designs within the forthcoming pages celebrate the air-filled spaces which bring knit and crochet patterns to life – expect lots of lace and gauzy mohair – but also honour the intangible, liminal spaces which many of us inhabit. It’s our pleasure to have collaborated with Ocean Rose who is this issue’s Art Director, and we hope that the designs, words, and photos within are like a breath of fresh, well, air!
Accompanying the designers’ work is the interview, ‘Liminal Bodies’, by Francesca Baldry with Jacqueline Cieslack, a recipe for meringues by Kat Goldin, and Ocean has written a tutorial for a Floating Floral Arrangement which appears to be artfully suspended in mid-, you guessed it, air.
As usual, available to ship or collect in store.

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.
