Pom Pom Issue 43: Winter 2022
Great knits are like great art because they make us think differently, and the making process can be even more revelatory! Showing us how we can look to and beyond our horizons when it comes to our craft, Pom Pom's 43rd issue is inspired by the work of women artists Etel Adnan and Hilma af Klint.
Etel Adnan's work features landscapes, using bold and unexpected colours to portray the places where the land meets the sky. Hilma af Klint created large abstract paintings of metaphysical meditations that she felt she had been called on to represent. Both show us distinct ways of looking at the world and possible worlds beyond the visible realm, just as a knitter or crocheter can look at a ball of yarn and ponder many outcomes!
Pom Pom's winter collection of ten patterns features striking colours, innovative techniques, and bold and imaginative knits that play with design and perspective. So whether you fancy a colourwork challenge or just some meditative time as the sun sets in the sky, there's bound to be something here to expand your crafting horizons!
Featuring designs by: AMY BLACKWELL // KJERSTIN ROVETTA // MARZENA KOŁACZEK // AVERY ERB // AUDREY BORREGO // REGINA WIMMER // MARIE RÉGNIER // MER STEVENS // SARAH OPIE
Issue 43 also includes an insightful and expansive interview with yarn dyers Jude Harper and Lola Johnson and a fascinating dig into the history of the colour pink by Hannah McGregor. Pom Pom is also thrilled to include a bookmark tutorial from artist Elizabeth Ashdown using the centuries-old art of passementerie and a recipe for a carrot cake from Fi Churchman that will bring an orangey glow to chilly evenings.
