46: Autumn 2023 - PRE-ORDER
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 Issue 46 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.

After ten years of publishing knit-focussed collections with just a sprinkling of crochet we thought it was about time we leaned into our love of this often less-celebrated craft and released a special anthology of some of our most loved crochet classics from the Pom Pom archive. Featuring ten garment and accessory patterns across 128 pages in our vintage Pom Pom size, this surprise edition is perfect for on-the-go crafting this summer!
As crocheters, we know how amazing it is to build something wearable from little stacked loops, and we hope you enjoy creating the pieces in this anthology as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
To round things off in true Pom style, there's a recipe for Bebinca, a traditional Goan dessert that, like crochet, grows in layers. Crafting is hard work after all, and we can’t live on stitches alone!
Featuring tried and true designs by: Ana D // Gina Fama Röckenwagner // Meghan Fernandes // Julia Madill // Isa Catepillán // Inyoung Kim // Lucia Luciano // Judith Brand
