About Pom Pom
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in a modern, beautiful, and meaningful way. Conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, Pom Pom also
celebrates the joy of making. Pom Pom is an independently published magazine working with independent designers, illustrators, writers, editors, and yarn producers.
11 patterns from sweaters to shawls to hats and mitts offer plenty of options for knitting the night away – here are a few of our favorites.
Carissa Browning’s Hypatia cowl uses a mixture of double-stranded garter stitch and double knitting in the round in sportweight yarn. Knit stitches form the front face of the fabric, while purl stitches form the back face. Fascinating!
Catherine Clark’s stunning Ixchel pullover featured on the cover will highlight the beauty of your favorite fingering weight hand-dyed yarn while challenging your colorwork skills! Unlike most yoke sweaters, Ixchel has center and back panels that remain untouched by increases, and is knit top down in the round.
The elegantly textural Luna pullover by Anna Strandberg features two-color brioche stitch in sportweight yarn. The hardest part will be deciding which two colors to pick! Luna is knit from the top down in the round.
Moondust Hat & Mittens
Melanie Berg’s Moondust Hat and Moondust Mittens make a lovely set for gift giving – knit them up in a dreamy fingering weight yarn for yourself or a friend.
