This autumn issue of Pom Pom sees Pom Pom’s collaboration with the multidisciplinary artist Ocean Rose. Their theme of ‘Home’ makes for a dreamy collection of cosy autumnal knits, evoking the places that bring connection and comfort. This inspiration was chosen long before the current situation of sheltering in place, and has brought about the unique challenge of their models capturing this quarter’s beautiful knits with micro-shoots in their abodes. 

Ocean, known for their naturally hand-dyed yarns, has brought their poetic voice, palette, thoughtfulness and sensitivity to these pages. Their designers have conjured their own interpretations of home with pieces that create a sense of warmth, not just against autumn chills, with references to traditional patterns and their bonds to special places.

Featuring designs by:

SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // AURÉLIE TIXIER // TRESSA WEIDENAAR // ARMENUHI AVANIAN // MALIA MAE JOSEPH // AUDREY BORREGO // A L LEONG // ISABEL ALÉ // TIFFANY WONG // WEICHIEN CHAN,  THEPETITEKNITTER 

Alongside the patterns they have articles from Sukrita Mahon sharing their wisdom on choosing yarns, and Elliot Maud on self expression and belonging in the fibre community. Cat Seixas shares her recipe for a no-bake cheesecake, an easy dish which is the ideal excuse to find the occasion to celebrate. For makers, mending seems to go hand-in-hand and Maya Skylark provides a tutorial for a pocket sized tool kit that you can keep close to home.

They acknowledge the privilege reflected in these pages that show the warmth and happiness of home. Pom Pom hope this issue can speak to a deeper sense of safety and belonging than just the place you rest your head. As Ocean puts it, ‘Home is where you are, where your energy rests, home changes, and transforms. Home is our connection to all we hold sacred. Home is…

 About the magazine

Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way they’ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, they also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking themselves too seriously!
