From the creators of Pom Pom Quarterly:
This autumn issue of Pom Pom sees our collaboration with the multidisciplinary artist Ocean Rose. Their theme of ‘Home’ makes for a dreamy collection of cosy autumnal knits, evoking the places that bring connection and comfort. This inspiration was chosen long before our current situation of sheltering in place, and has brought about the unique challenge of our models capturing this quarter’s beautiful knits with micro-shoots in their abodes.
Ocean, known for their naturally hand-dyed yarns, has brought their poetic voice, palette, thoughtfulness and sensitivity to these pages. Our designers have conjured their own interpretations of home with pieces that create a sense of warmth, not just against autumn chills, with references to traditional patterns and their bonds to special places.
Featuring designs by
SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // AURÉLIE TIXIER // TRESSA WEIDENAAR // ARMENUHI AVANIAN // MALIA MAE JOSEPH // AUDREY BORREGO // A L LEONG // ISABEL ALÉ // TIFFANY WONG // WEICHIEN CHAN, THEPETITEKNITTER
Alongside the patterns we have articles from Sukrita Mahon sharing their wisdom on choosing yarns, and Elliot Maud on self expression and belonging in the fibre community. Cat Seixas shares her recipe for a no-bake cheesecake, an easy dish which is the ideal excuse to find the occasion to celebrate. For makers, mending seems to go hand-in-hand and Maya Skylark provides a tutorial for a pocket sized tool kit that you can keep close to home.
We acknowledge the privilege reflected in these pages that show the warmth and happiness of home. We hope this issue can speak to a deeper sense of safety and belonging than just the place you rest your head. As Ocean puts it, ‘Home is where you are, where your energy rests, home changes, and transforms. Home is our connection to all we hold sacred. Home is…’
Isabell Kraemer’s Cullum tee is a breezy top that we've knit in Bellatrista's Milk Fingering. This elegant, drapey tee (shown over a tank for those who desire extra coverage) is embellished with lacy details at neck and hem with an easy fit that works with everything in your wardrobe.
Spun from 100% milk protein fiber, Milk Fingering is machine-washable with a delightfully soft hand and slight shimmer. This unique, renewable fiber is naturally wrinkle-free and exhibits a luxuriousness similar to silk.
Kit includes 2, 3, or 4 skeins of Milk Fingering (3.5 oz [100g] each). Pattern sold separately on Ravelry ($6.50 USD). Click tabs above for more information about the pattern and yarn.

Izzy Knits’ exclusive Bommer Canyon Wrap is named for the canyon in which we took these photos. Filled with ancient oak and sycamore groves and rough rock outcrops, Bommer Canyon’s rugged, natural beauty is reflected in the wrap’s stunning, earthy hues and its chevron pattern, reminiscent of the canyon’s undulating terrain.
Designed for Urth Yarns fingering-weight, extrafine, superwash merino, this wrap is ideal in spring, summer, and fall. Knit in multiple “blocks” or sections of Urth’s Monokrom (tonal) and Uneek (self-striping) yarns, the colors progress from one to the other with both well-defined and seamless transitons for visual impact.
Pattern also sold separately as a downloadable PDF.
