Pom Pom Press Pom Pom Issue #48
It is with bittersweet pride that we present the 48th and final issue of Pom Pom Quarterly. The title of this edition, Check Mate, has many meanings to us at this time, but most importantly, it marks the end of a wonderful journey. This issue includes garments and accessories, all of which reference patterns more often seen in wovens, using many familiar knitting and crochet techniques to create something special. From plaids worked in various ways and on various scales, to beautiful colourwork designs that reference overshot weaving, we love the way our designers have highlighted the sisterhood between yarn-based mediums and the common thread that runs through textiles. Inside this final issue you will also find a luxurious woven coaster tutorial from Woven Glow, a written piece on her family’s weaving traditions from Jennifer Berg, and a delicious braided challah bread recipe from Challah Back Girls. Featuring designs by:Marie Régnier // Susan Lin // Giuseppina Flamini // Yessabett Bueno // Stine Hoelgaard // Olivia Glennon // Sara Ottosson // Julia Wilkens // Jule Kebelmann // Elspeth Vance

Pom Pom Press Pom Pom - Issue 43
Great knits are like great art because they make us think differently, and the process of making can be even more revelatory! Showing us how we can look to, and beyond, our horizons when it comes to our craft, our 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, and 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 at possible worlds beyond the visible realm, just as a knitter or crocheter can look at a ball of yarn and ponder a plethora of outcomes! Pom Pom’s winter collection of 10 patterns features striking colours and innovative techniques, and bold and imaginative knits that play with pattern 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!
