PomPom Issue 1
Our premiere issue, first published in 2012 and until now out of print, is back! The original designs have been cleverly reworked, sizes added, and knit in new yarns. Think of it as your favourite cardigan, fresh from a wash and block, with all the pills removed, and brand new buttons to boot. This collector’s edition of the magazine is a must for any lovers of Pom Pom and print.
The reboot features all-new photography of the five classic patterns designed by editors Meghan Fernandes and Lydia Gluck, and includes a new version of the cover star Netherton as a pullover too! Neatly finished with a sewn spine, an extra special touch to enjoy when it sits on your bookshelf alongside your other Pom Poms!

Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly 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 seriously!
Since our kitchen table beginnings, we’ve gone on to feature some of the most well-known and loved independent designers and yarn producers, with some of the less well-known also growing along with us. We are so proud and lucky to be able to say that Pom Pom is now stocked at over 250 locally-owned yarn and craft stores across four continents and 20 countries. At Pom Pom we know that knitters are creative, curious people – so we also include lots of other features we think you’ll enjoy – from cocktail recipes, to dyeing tutorials, to articles about 18th century paper cut artists! Basically anything we think will inspire you. We also take pride in every detail of our magazine, from the typefaces we use right down to the paper we’re printed on – knitters are tactile people after all! We have always been, and continue to be, printed in the United Kingdom.
Pom Pom continues to grow, and we very much value each and everyone of you along with us on the journey! We are so excited about bringing you more thoughtful, beautiful, joyful, educational, and inspirational knitted (and crocheted!) goodness for a long time to come
