Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs in this issue (pictured above) were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, essential knit summer tanks and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days. The yarn and needle requirements for each pattern can be found here on Ravelry, but for now these patterns are only available in this hard copy collection.
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics worth reevaluating.
Pom Pom also has yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, this issue has 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 pattern! 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.
