Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly magazine 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
Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs in Issue 29 were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions on creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating.
We also have yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, we have a project bag tutorial by artist Arounna Khounnoraj, She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired, tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for Maple Bourbon Fudge which whips up easily as an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
