Pom Pom Issue 40 - Dreamscape

$19.00
Type: Magazine

For the 40th issue Pom Pom has concocted a knitted dreamworld! Allow their latest collection to transport you to your yarn-filled happy place with joy-bringing patterns which are whimsical without compromising elegance or wearability. The designs reference the seemingly unstructured nature of dreams through floaty fabrics and ethereal embellishments, loose gauge, and by gently emboldening the maker to use their intuition when it comes to playing with colour. As with anything that appears effortless, copious amounts of imagination and clever thinking form the foundation of these designs and they encourage the kind of creative escapism we cherish in crafting. The patterns in this collection vary in intensity; from ones which will allow you to realize your knitting fantasies to others you could finish with your eyes closed. But rest assured, each one will grant you gratification in a different way.
