Since its first issue in 2012, Pom Pom Quarterly has been a leading influencer of design and style in our industry. With its lovely hand-drawn schematics and techniques, its support of crochet, tasty recipes, and innovative designs, the magazine has been a favorite of ours from the beginning. (So much so, we're proud to call ourselves among its wonderful advertisers!)
The 5th anniversary issue, Spring 2017, recently hit newsstands, and it is - again - a winner! (I, for one, am desperate to cast on for Soirée.) The issue features a wonderful, modern colorwork hat, Bash, designed by Linda Dubec using The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering.
From the issue:
Yarn: The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering: Eden Valley; Yew Tree; Buttermere; 1 (1) skein each.
