Pom Pom Magazine - Issue 40: Spring 2022
For their 40th issue, Pom Pom has conjured up a knitted dreamworld! Allow the 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 color. 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 realize 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.
In addition to the 10 knitting patterns, the 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 prioritizes neuro-typical 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!
