Pompom Quarterly

Issue 33 Summer 2020: 

The theme for our summer issue is the sun – as we’ve moved through the classic elements of water, earth, and air for our quarterly inspiration we next looked to fire, by way of this life giving star. The designers have embodied its energetic colours and radiance as their inspiration, creating pieces for this season to enjoy from sunrise to sunset.

This issue has two covers, we just couldn’t decide on one this quarter! But don’t sweat, no matter which cover you receive, exactly the same wonderful content is inside.

The world has taken a difficult turn since we started compiling this issue, and while the sun shines we are all staying indoors as much as we can. We hope that many of you, in this time of social distancing and change, can take comfort in the familiarity of crafting. We hope that this summer collection of knit and crochet warm-weather makes will transport you in whatever way you need. Our summer issue always aims for items truly wearable in warmer climes but this quarter we aim to convey an extra dose of joy and comfort also.

Featuring designs by

PAULA PEREIRA // AMALIA SIEBER // RACHAEL REESE // ISA CATEPILLÁN // NATALIYA SINELSHCHIKOVA // WENCKE PERTERMANN // ERICA SUFKA // SANDRA GUTIERREZ // EZGI TANDOGAN ONAT //  JULIA WILKENS //  MARJAN GOUDA

The sun also shines on Kat Goldin’s recipe, a simple handmade pasta flavoured with sun-dried tomatoes and our fun crochet tutorial which accompanies Marjan Gouda’s scrunchie pattern. We feel so lucky to have incandescent artwork by Juju Vail to accompany vibrant photography by Shingi Rice, and luminous jewellery from Ilista Studio styled alongside our collection’s pieces.

We hope with all our hearts that this collection of tops, along with two shawls, and a bag, shares the euphoria the sun can bring.

Issue 32 Spring 2020: 

Spring is just around the corner to reinvigorate us with longer days and buds bursting forth. We’re welcoming sweet spring breezes with our first theme of the new decade: air.
This precious and fragile element unites us and our designers translated this ethereal concept into tangelable knits and crochet. Each pattern captures the spaces between the stitches, with gauzy mohairs, modern lace and airy open textures.

Featuring designs by

AMALIA SIEBER // BRONTË SWANNICK // CAMILA LARSEN ESVEILE // JOJI LOCATELLI // LANA JOIS // MARA LICOLE TAYLOR // MEGHAN FERNANDES // NATALIYA SINELSHCHIKOVA // ROSEMARY (ROMI) HILL // WENCKE PETERMANN

For art direction and styling, we collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Ocean Rose to capture this collection of atmospheric patterns. Ocean also lends their talents for a how-to on flower arranging so you can create your own welcome to spring with a floating botanical decoration. Your taste buds will be catered for by Kat Goldin’s meringue recipe, and finally we have an interview with body-positive activist and designer Jacqueline Cieslack.

Pause, take a deep breath and find your space this spring.

Issue 31 November 2019:

Welcome to winter; a collection of patterns inspired by terrain awaits you. The designs are a nod to the tactile and three-dimensional nature of knitwear, but also explorations of the deeper meanings of maps, journeys, and boundaries. The designers, yarn producers, and writers come from, have moved to, and have cultural roots in many different parts of the world. We hope that the stories that are woven into their words and designs will ground you at this busy time of year.

These designers are also joined by Sophia Cai, discussing the powerful meaning behind an important jumper project, Yukako Satone of Loop of the Loom with a unique mud-dyeing tutorial for a striking wall hanging, and sweet treats are provided by Kat Goldin with her twist on the chocolate classic rocky road.
