Welcome to winter, a collection of patterns inspired by terrain awaits you. The designs are a nod to the tactile and three-dimensional nature of knitwear, but also explorations of the deeper meanings of maps, journeys, and boundaries. The designers, yarn producers, and writers come from, have moved to, and have cultural roots in many different parts of the world. PomPom hopes that the stories that are woven into their words and designs will ground you at this busy time of year.
These designers are also joined by Sophia Cai, discussing the powerful meaning behind an important jumper project, Yukako Satone of Loop of the Loom with a unique mud-dyeing tutorial for a striking wall hanging, and sweet treats are provided by Kat Goldin with her twist on the chocolate classic rocky road.
The location for this issue was Pedernales Falls State Park in central Texas, a significant place of natural beauty and ecological importance. In recognition of the Indigenous communities that were stewards of this land, PomPom will donate a percentage of this issue's sales to the Society of Native Nations.
