Pom Pom Quarterly – Issue 30: Autumn 2019
Pom Pom is a quarterly, collectable publication based in London UK, for smart, creative types who like knitting patterns with a modern aesthetic, great photography and interesting writing. Pom Pom is also into lots of other types of crafts and of course music, fashion, art, food and just generally making the world a little more beautiful with the things to make!
Pom Pom was set up in 2012 by Lydia Gluck and Meghan Fernandes. They knew (like you probably do!) that knitting is super-cool, but based on the way knitting was presented in the media, they felt 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!
This Autumn we're heading to the coast with our knitting. The patterns in 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. 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.
The magazine includes designs by: Katrin Schubert, Inyoung Kim, Annie Haas, Ainur Berkimbayeva, Emma Ducher, Sylvia Watts-Cherry, Meghan Fernandes, Kiyomi Burgin and Sachiko Burgin.
