You’re invited to Pom Pom's yarn party! Issue 41 marks their 10th birthday and they have a host of jubilant and celebratory designs which radiate all the joy they feel on this landmark occasion! This rare bumper edition of Pom Pom Quarterly contains 13 designs for warm and cool climes, so no matter where you live in the world, there’s handmade party outfits aplenty within its pages.
This is their most collectable edition yet! Not only is this unique issue split into warm and cool patterns, they’ve gone all out with a flip double cover. This is also the first issue printed in their new larger format! Expect lush photographic spreads and more room for patterns – something you’ve told them they could work on! They’ve also permanently increased their page count to bring you even more Pom Pom! Over the last decade(!), they’ve had the absolute honour of working with some of the most creative and inspirational people in the fibre world, and they invited a handful of them to contribute to this extraordinary summer collection!

Dee Omole shares her recipe for the most stunning white chocolate madeleines we’ve ever seen – we’re sure these would make a statement centerpiece at any shindig. So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks and celebrate!

"For our 40th issue we’ve concocted a knitted dreamworld! Allow our latest collection to transport you to your yarn-filled happy place with joy-bringing patterns which 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, our spring 2022 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!"
