PomPom Issue 27
|Publisher Names||by Pompom|
We are honoured to collaborate with Norah Gaughan as our winter issue guest editor, and nothing could of prepared us for the beauty and drama of the results. Taking the idea of tough Victoriana, the traditional notion of a delicate lady surrounded by flowers is transformed into a warrior woman of strength and resilience.
The knits in this issue are imagined for the modern heroine. Create your own knitted armour with swirling cables and sculptural stitch details; it’s time to celebrate texture and sumptuous colours!
Our stellar lineup curated by Norah, including the designer herself, features:
ANDREA RANGEL // BOADICEA BINNERTS // CAITLIN HUNTER // CIRILIA ROSE // HONOR ADAMS // JOJI LOCATELLI // LINDA MARVENG // VÉRONIK AVERY // XANDY PETERS
Also packed into our winter issue is a column by our resident columnist Anna Maltz exploring knitting beyond traditions, we have a Q&A session with Norah, and a recipe for a braided challah bread – just as comforting and squishy as knitted cables.
Printed in the UK on lovely heavy paper.
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
