As this is our anniversary year, we’re doing everything with an extra special flair, and that includes our knit along too! This season’s KAL is made possible thanks to our headline sponsors John Arbon Textiles, plus the lovely Coop Knits, Julie Asselin, Kettle Yarn Co. and La Bien Aimée.
With the upcoming release of Issue 21, you now have nearly 200 Pom Pom patterns to chose from! In fact, did you know that accordingly to Ravelry, over the past five years you folks have knitted over 10,000 beautiful woolly things from the magazine – phew!
In addition to our back catalogue, you’ll have 16 new birthday patterns to choose from next week! There are some mighty fine yarns to peruse as well. Our lovely KAL sponsors might just give you a clue of the yarns to come in our Anniversary Issue – stay tuned for pattern sneek peaks over the bank holiday weekend! For now, here’s a reminder of their lovely yarns for a little Friday treat!
The rules of the KAL are the same as always, so here’s a reminder of how to get involved.
1) Knit or crochet a project from any issue of Pom Pom or our blog.
2) Any project is welcome as long as you haven’t entered it before.
3) Post updates, pics, notes, comments, oohs and ahhs etc in this thread, and post a pic of your finished item in the FO thread.
4) At the end of each season, 28th July, we choose winners at random who will receive some wonderful prizes!
And there are plenty of prizes to be had! Not only will you be able to join in posting your FO online, as the name suggests this Pomfest KAL will be running during our big birthday party Pomfest! So if you come dressed wearing your Pom Pom finest you’ll be entered to win the special Pomfest prize. Extra points if you knit something from our Anniversary Issue 21!
Speaking of, we’re thrilled to announce the designer line up for this summer issue. A list of people we are very proud to have collaborated with in past issues who have all created stellar pieces in honour of our anniversary.
Stay tuned for the big reveal next week!
Pom Pom xx
