Issue 27 / Winter 2018 - The Winter Issue with guest editor, Norah Gaughran!
Pom Pom Quarterly Magazine is honoured to collaborate with Norah Gaughan as their winter issue guest editor, and nothing could have prepared them for the beauty and drama of the results. Taking the idea of tough Victoriana, the traditional notion of a delicate lady surrounded by flowers is transformed into a warrior woman of strength and resilience.
The knits in this issue are imagined for the modern heroine. Create your own knitted armour with swirling cables and sculptural stitch details; it’s time to celebrate texture and sumptuous colours!
The stellar lineup curated by Norah, including the designer herself, FEATURING DESIGNS BY:
Also packed into this (Northern Hemisphere) winter issue is a column by resident columnist Anna Maltz exploring knitting beyond traditions, a Q&A session with Norah, and a recipe for a braided challah bread – just as comforting and squishy as knitted cables.
Printed in the UK on lovely heavy paper when digital just isn't doing it for ya!
Summer is about to happen here in the Southern Hemisphere! Enter Issue 25, dedicated to a summer staple: stripes! Think beach huts, deckchairs and classic Breton tops, think cool cotton tees and breezy long linen tops. New Zealand - you know you love this look, whatever the weather!
We’ve got you covered with no fewer than eight tops to take you from sunny days to summer nights, two elegant shawls to waft around when days turn breezy, and the most pretty and practical knot bag to take your WIPs safely to the beach and back.

Issue 24 / Spring 2018 - Postage Stamp
This issue the Pom Pom Quarterly contributors have designed their knits using a postage stamp as inspiration. Where possible, each design uses a yarn which originates from the same country as said stamp and these ten patterns are certainly something to write home about. Each stamp has been re-imagined by Elena Skoreyko Wagner and her playful paper cut illustrations are dotted around the knits and throughout the issue.
You’ll also find their resident columnist Anna Maltz musing on the connection between stamps and knitting style, Meghan Fernandes exploring how snail mail links our long-distance knitting relationships, and artist Grace Chin explains her process as a paper artist. There is also a tasty pie recipe by Rebecca Lawrence – a perfectly portable parcel of comfort food.

We’re certain that this issue will have your stamp of approval!
