Pom Pom Quarterly – Issue 32: Spring 2020
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 Spring issue presents a collection of patterns inspired by air. This precious and fragile element unites us and this issue's 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!
The magazine includes designs by: Joji Locatelli, Brontë Swannick, Lana Jois, Nataliya Sinelshchikova, Camila Larsen Esveile, Mara Licole Taylor, Wencke Pertermann, Meghan Fernandes, Amalia Sieber and Rosemary (Romi) Hill.
