PRE-ORDER THE NEW POMPOM QUARTERLY

Spring has definitely sprung and it's time to start thinking about your summer knits. The brand new Pom Pom Quarterly has you covered! Issue 29 is full of fab patterns, recipes, articles, tutorials and more!

This is how they describe the new issue:

"Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs this issue were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential summer tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.

We’re also excited that we’ve finally been able to add more pages to the magazine. This means more room for the gorgeous photography you love, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).

Featuring designs by:
AMY CHRISTOFFERS // SARI NORDLUND // SORAYA GARCÍA // ISA CATEPILLÁN // CLARE LAKEWOOD // JOSÉE PAQUINE // MARJORIE MARTIN // RACHAEL REESE // STEPHANIE EARP

This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating.

We also have yarn-free based projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, we have a project bag tutorial by artist Arrounna Khounnoraj, of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for her Maple Bourbon Fudge is an easy way to whip up an impressive sweet treat to share with friends."

Pre-order Issue 29 (Summer 2019) for delivery in early June - we'll be posting to you on the 31st of May.

If you can't wait until then you can get your knitting fix from some other fab Pom Pom titles we have in stock right now.

From top left in clockwise order in the above image we have hand-picked some fab projects in the following Pom Pom publications.

INTERPRETATIONS 6 - Resolute Wrap is a fab lightweight lace wrap that would work well in Titus. You'd need 4 hanks to make it. 

WOOL JOURNEY SHETLAND - Hellik Shawl by Stephen West is a shop favourite. Jane has made her's in our Pip Colourwork, using 14 balls in 14 colours. Follow us on Instagram to see pictures.

KNITS ABOUT WINTER - Barn Sweater is a cosy layer for the cooler evenings. It would work great in our Winterburn dk, and takes between 6 - 9 hanks to knit.

KNIT HOW - Dan Hat is a great quick holiday knit. You can make it in our Winterburn Aran, if you make it all one colour you only need 1 hank.
