Issue 47 : WINTER 2023 : Monochrome
Pom Pom has always been a celebration of colour in knit and crochet form and this issue is no different. We love colour so much that often we try and get as much of it into each piece as we can, but for this monochrome-themed issue we wanted to see what could be done with fabrics that used more subtle tonal differences within a single hue, or closely related ones.
In this issue, designers played with depth, saturation, and brightness; maximum impact with minimum contrast.
In addition to our makes we have an interview with Dana Williams-Johnson who answers our eager questions about her PhD dissertation that centres around knitting and representation of Black women in the online crafting community.
We also have a winter-friendly recipe by Fi Churchman.

Issue 46 : AUTUMN 2023 with Guest Editor: Candice English of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers
Collaborating with creatives we admire is one of the great joys of making Pom Pom. Candice English of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers has been an inspiration to us for a long time, both as a dyer and as an advocate for Indigenous women. We are thrilled to welcome Candice as Guest Editor for this issue.
Candice has brought a fresh perspective to these pages, along with her distinctive aesthetic, drawing from both her Indigenous roots and life in the American West. We are so grateful to her for sharing herself, her work, and her family with us. It’s an honour to be trusted with the stories and creativity of each contributor to this autumn issue.
The patterns in this issue are a representation of hard and soft duality in the American West. The hard work embedded in the people of Montana is a result of the softness you find in the spirit of Indigenous homelands. You will find classic designs that can be worn in utilitarian ways but also jazzed up a bit for social outings.
Featuring designs by: Allison Lutes // Esti Juango // Elena Solier Jansà // Natalie Bullock // Sandy Jones // Lindsey Fowler // Lena Zharichenko // Lee Ann Yazzie // Imke von Nathusius // Tin Can Knits

"Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that would present knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way weâ€™ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, we also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking ourselves too seriously!"
