Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly magazine, featuring knitting and crochet in a modern way.

It combines well-known independent designers and yarn producers with some lesser known ones, bringing a fresh perspective to the designs.

And, it's not just a collection of patterns, it also includes thoughtful writing and useful tutorials (and a recipe too!)

Some of my past favourites...

pom pom favourites

 1. Curio Mitts by Wencke Pertermann in Issue 11 - Winter 2014

2. Trove by Emma Ducher in Issue 30 - Autumn 2019

3. Rievaulx by Josee Paguin in Issue 29 - Summer 2019

4. Selsey by Fiona Alice in Issue 10 -  August 2010

Although it is available in digital form (a code is include with each print edition) it is also a beautifully produced 'bookish' magazine on thick paper (it even smells good), so it's worth buying a hard copy.

You can see our current Pom Pom collection here, including the brand new issue 33, a bold and bright summer issue inspired by the sun. You can see all the pattern details on Ravelry.

Heliotropic, by Erica Sufka, caught my eye. I think our new Iolair Yarn would work perfectly. Either Gigha's merino/silk blend of Luing's luxurious blend of alpaca, silk and cashmere.
