Pom Pom Quarterly - The Home Issue - No. 34
Issue 34 is here! Our Autumn 2020 collection is guest edited by Ocean Rose, and their dreamy aesthetic saturates every single page. Ocean chose ‘home’ as the theme for their issue long before many of us would be spending longer in our abodes than usual due to the pandemic. Prepare yourselves for ten cosy, snuggly knits which will make you want to hunker down during the months of autumn.
The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that the sneak peeks we’ve shared of this issue on Instagram have been photographed and modelled by different people. To keep our teams safe during lockdown, we asked the models to photograph themselves from the comfort of their own homes, which ties in with this issue’s theme perfectly!
In the past, we’ve linked each design to its page on Ravelry. However, in light of Ravelry’s current accessibility issues, we’ve included more images and information for each design here so that those who cannot use the site can still get the full low-down! If you do wish to view PPQ34’s patterns on Ravelry, then you can enjoy them here.
More About Pom Pom Magazine
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.
