Pom Pom Quarterly - Issue 29 (Summer 2019)
ISSUE 29 Summer 2019 (Release date May 31)
Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs in issue 29 of Pom Pom were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, Pom Pom has essential tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
Pom Pom has also add extra pages to the magazine to make 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).
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers questions on creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating. There are also yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, they have a project bag tutorial by artist Arounna Khounnora ( 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 Maple Bourbon Fudge which whips up easily as an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
Let those dreamy summer days begin!
