Pom Pom Quarterly – Issue 42: Autumn 2022
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, crochet and other crafts in the best possible light!!
It’s no secret that, when it comes to colour, texture, and pattern, over at Pom Pom they’re maximalists through and through! This autumn, they decided to embrace this natural instinct of theirs and curate a knit and crochet collection inspired by abundance. The result is 11 glorious designs with immense visual impact, highly satisfying and tactile motifs, and which echo the intricate aesthetic of the Arts and Crafts movement. The patterns are mesmerising, romantic, and somehow embody the wondrous generosity imbued in the act of making.
Issue 42 features designs by: EDDA LILJA // ELENA DIMCHEVSKA // EMMA DUCHER // EMMA JANET // ERICA SUFKA // FRAN LÓPEZ // LUCIA LUCIANO // MARIA WALTERS // OLIVIA SCZEPANIK // WEICHIEN CHAN (THEPETITEKNITTER) // YUCCA
Issue 42 includes an article by Aja Barber, an eminent figure in the pushback against fast fashion, who encourages us to think more about the clothes we pair with our handmade items. What’s more, spend a golden autumn afternoon reading the interview with embroidery extraordinaire, Tessa Perlow, and try out Ella Hawkins’ biscuit decorating tutorial to make confectionery which looks like your knitting.
