For their 40th issue, Pom Pom has conjured up a knitted dreamworld! The designs reference the seemingly unstructured nature of dreams through floaty fabrics and ethereal embellishments, loose gauge, and by gently emboldening you to use your 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 the designs. The patterns vary in intensity; from ones that will allow you to realise your knitting fantasies to others, you could finish with your eyes closed.
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, Pom Pom's spring 2022 collection contains an article by Lilith Green, in which she talks about her experience of autism and how making provides a haven from a world that 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’s recipe to bake Honeysuckle Cream Puffs.
