It’s Pom Pom party time! Issue 21 sees us celebrating our 5th anniversary, so why not join in and enjoy our bumper issue with 16 gorgeous knits from your favourite Pom Pom designers. And you’re not seeing double – Issue 21 is available with two different covers, each with a rose gold foil logo!

As well as being packed with patterns, Issue 21 includes food for thought from Rachel Atkinson and Clara Parkes on the British wool industry, sees our resident columnist Anna Maltz get her (knitted) party hat on, plus a beautiful illustrated story by Katie Green shows the magic behind the scenes at Blacker Yarns. To finish off the party, of course our recipe this issue is a delicious peachy cake.

    Do we get to pick which cover we want?

    • Pom Pom Mag May 5, 2017 at 4:09 pm #

      We thought it would be more fun to make it a surprise as to which cover you will receive! x

      • Kaz May 6, 2017 at 5:10 am #

        mmmm leaves too much room for disappointment. Only two patterns here I’d wear because I’m in a country that isn’t that cold so no point having beanies and wristers.

    I just ordered this issue. When will it be shipped? Or is it digital?

    • Pom Pom Mag May 8, 2017 at 12:31 pm #

      Hi, thanks for placing your order! Pre-Orders will be shipped mid May – you’ve ordered a print and digital version. The digital version of Issue 21 will be live at the end of May.

      • Bonnie May 28, 2017 at 1:46 am #

        Can’t wait! ?

  3. Arlene Jackson May 6, 2017 at 1:23 am #

    ……. as long as all the patterns are there, then it would be a lovely surprise! However, I have tried to purchase, all my PayPal details there etc but you need a password!!! Heavens, life gets difficult when we need a password for every little detail in life!

  4. Zofia May 9, 2017 at 6:34 pm #

    Is there a way of preordering only digital version?

    • Pom Pom Mag May 17, 2017 at 11:09 am #

      Hi Zofia,

      You can pre-order your digital subscription here !
      If you would like a single digital copy of Issue 21 then this will be live at the end of the month.

    Really looking forward to receiving my anniversary edition and also the republished volume 1. If you could do issues 2-5 that would be great and complete my collection. :0) ……

  6. Mary Wicks May 19, 2017 at 9:11 am #

    I received notification that I can download the digital version of issue 21 as well as the republished volume 1 but haven’t yet got the print copies! Hoping the print copies are on their way because I’m finding it hard to resist peeping at the digital ones first!

    • Pom Pom Mag May 19, 2017 at 3:36 pm #

      Hi Mary! copies are on their way! x

  7. Patricia McMullen May 28, 2017 at 2:40 pm #

    I paid for the print plus digital. My payment was made on paypal, but have not received anything.

    • Pom Pom Mag June 1, 2017 at 1:53 pm #

      Just sent you an email :)

    hello any way to get details about the clothing paired with some of the knit items? that pink patchwork skirt has me drooling!

    • Pom Pom Mag July 31, 2018 at 2:27 pm #

      ah thank you! The patchwork skirt styled with the ‘Knees-up’ socks is a vintage find, maybe you’ll find something similar one day?
