The knit and crochet designs in Issue 39 are inspired by rhythm! This Winter 2021 collection is packed with patterns which honour echoes, explore semitonal shifts in colour, and include repeating motifs to allow you to get into a stitching groove. We love how the designers have taken our auditory theme and created patterns which highlight the aspects of rhythm we see, such as written musical scores and the visual representation of soundwaves. No matter at what tempo you craft, there’s a winter project for you here!
In this issue you will find 10 designs including four sweaters, two cardigans, one hat, two pairs of mittens and one pair of socks designed by: JUDITH BRAND, ASTRID COLDING SIVERTSEN, ADELLA DUTRA, ANA D, TETYANA VYAZOVSKA, JOHANNA KUNIN, NIDHI KANSAL, KEIKO KIKUNO, CLEO MALONE, VALERIE NG
For this issue on rhythm, the artistic direction of this issue was entrusted to the artist, designer and stylist Lydia Morrow, whose sense of jazzy style the PomPom team has admired for a long time and who can also be found as a model for this issue alongside Loulou Haiken.
In the article ‘Rhythms of Handiwork’, Felicity (Felix) Ford explores the communal and historical relationship between craft and rhythm, while in her article ‘A Family Song’, Claudia Khan movingly evokes the delicate melody of parenthood, partnership and time.
We were once again lucky enough to participate in this beautiful issue and you will be able to discover the superb crocheted cardigan “Rockmore” created by the talented Ana D in Gilliatt “caramel” (5 to 11 balls depending on the size). The pattern is both pure and subtly sophisticated and makes you want to start crocheting!
