Pom Pom Quarterly is an institution, putting out magazines chock full of clever, creative and delectable knitting and patterns for nearly 10 years. We are delighted to bring this gorgeous magazine to you.
Issue 40: Dreamscape
For issue 40 visit a knitted dreamworld! This collection is filled with designs that are whimsical without compromising elegance or wearability. The designs reference the seemingly unstructured nature of dreams through floaty fabrics and ethereal embellishments, loose gauge, and by gently emboldening the maker to use their intuition when it comes to playing with colour. As with anything that appears effortless, copious amounts of imagination and clever thinking form the foundation of these designs and they encourage the kind of creative escapism we cherish in crafting. The patterns in this collection vary in intensity; from ones which will allow you to realise your knitting fantasies to others you could finish with your eyes closed. But rest assured, each one will grant you gratification in a different way.
Featuring designs by: AIMEE SHER // ALLISON LUTES // EDDA LILJA GUÐMUNDSDÓTTIR // HANNA LÜBBEN // JULIE DUBREUX // MARIE RÉGNIER // MARZENA KOŁACZEK // POPE VERGARA // REED KEYES.
In addition to the 10 knitting patterns, this collection contains an article, ‘Making a World’ by lilith green, in which lilith talks about her experience of autism and how the act of making provides a haven from a world which prioritises neurotypical people. If your goal is to try your hand at a craft other than knitting, learn how to make decorative Polish pająki with Karolina Merska, or use Stephanie Ganz’ recipe to bake Honeysuckle Cream Puffs – divine!
Issue 39: Rythym
The knit and crochet designs in Issue 39 are inspired by rhythm! This Winter 2021 collection is packed with patterns which honour echoes, explore semitonal shifts in colour, and include repeating motifs to allow you to get into a stitching groove. We love how the designers have taken our auditory theme and created patterns which highlight the aspects of rhythm we see, such as written musical scores and the visual representation of soundwaves. No matter at what tempo you craft, there’s a winter project for you here!
Featuring designs by: JUDITH BRAND // ASTRID COLDING SIVERTSEN // ADELLA DUTRA // ANA D // TETYANA VYAZOVSKA // JOHANNA KUNIN // NIDHI KANSAL // KEIKO KIKUNO // CLEO MALONE // VALERIE NG
Artist, maker, and stylist Lydia Morrow was the creative director for this issue’s photoshoot! After you’ve found your crafting cadence, enjoy the two articles in Issue 39. In ‘Rhythms of Handiwork’, Felicity (Felix) Ford explores the communal and historical relationship between craft and rhythm, while Claudia Khan writes touchingly about the delicate melody of parenthood, partnership, and time in her article, ‘A Family Song’. Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin are the authors of this issue’s handmade lip balm tutorial, so you can combat chapped lips brought on by cold weather and even have some non-knitted handmade gifts ready for the festive season.
Your purchase of the print magazine also includes access to a digital copy from publication date onwards via Ravelry using the download code printed on the inside cover of the magazine.
Issue 38: Roots and Branches
This issue celebrates trees: their roots, branches, leaves, and so much more. There are luscious cable patterns which mimic labyrinths of roots and statuesque boughs, clever colourwork and textures designed to imitate beautiful plantlife, and patterns which reference the enchanted forests of fairy tales. The collection is nine crochet and knitting patterns that include cardigans and pullovers as well as accessories, so there is bound to be something for you.
As always with Pom Pom, you get so much more than patterns. You will also find two articles, a a tutorial, and a recipe! Dawn Henderson invites us to introduce magick into our handicrafts by sharing her experiences of Hoodoo (or African American rootwork). Drawing on her expertise in microplastics, Tereza Pavlíková raises important questions about the textile industry and pollution, and Caitlin French demonstrates how you can make charcoal and ink from dried plant material! And while the garments will keep you toasty from the outside, Fi Churchman’s ginger pudding recipe will warm you from within!

Issue 37: Like a Bird
Let your heart and creative spirit soar as these stunning bird inspired patterns swoop into your life. For Issue 37, Pompom asked designers to take their inspiration from the detailed textures and glorious colours of birds. The results is 9 amazing patterns that draw their inspiration from everything from the shape of their footprints in snow to their sky formations. As a summer issue there is a wonderful focus on tees, singlets, and lightweight wraps. Start now and you will be all sorted for our antipodean spring in 3 months!
In addition to 9 knit and crochet patterns, there is a recipe, an article, and a tutorial also tucked into this issue! Fiona Churchman has included a delicious recipe for Feather Bread (a pandan coconut milk loaf) inspired by the treats she used to buy from London’s Chinatown bakeries before lockdown! Be sure to read Solène Le Roux’s insightful musings on how birds and humans can adapt to their surroundings. And Nuria Casadella-Puigvert of GANXXET walks you through how to make colourful chains for your sunglasses and face masks for when you’re out and about this summer!
