PomPom Issue 30 August 2019
|Publisher Names||by Pompom|
This Autumn we’re heading to the coast with our knitting. The patterns this issue are inspired by the sea, its surroundings, and its beautiful ever-changing shapes and textures.
The yarn palette draws from the many colours of the sea, as well as the soft shades of sand, shingle, and shells. Our designers have created a treasure chest of patterns: four jumpers, two wraps, a cardi, a tee, and a hat that will see you from high tide to low tide as the season shifts.
Featuring designs by
KIYOMI BURGIN // SACHIKO BURGIN // MEGHAN FERNANDES // ANNIE HAAS // SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA // EMMA DUCHER // INYOUNG KIM // KATRIN SCHUBERT // ANDREA CULL
Other contributions include poetry and images from Ocean Rose, musings on sailors’ knots and knitting from Clara Parkes, and an easy pickle recipe from Rebecca Lawrence to give you a taste of salty seas.
Printed in the UK on lovely heavy paper.
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.
