Pom Pom Quarterly Autumn 2016: A Review
Pom Pom Quarterly's Autumn 2016 issue is out. Let's have a look at it, shall we?
Florence shawl. I love the texture of this one, and the bold combination of pink and red.
Rocquaine. A classic gansey.
Tannins. This scarf feels very seventies, but in a classic, Mary Tyler Moore kind of way, not in a leisure suit kind of way.
Turion. These mittens are cute in an interesting and adult way rather than in a childish, bunnies and puppies way.
Vellamo. This is fun and rather smart, but I would change the shaping a little, as that cropped boxy shape doesn't tend to be very flattering.
Lara. Quite an attractive, artistic scarf. I especially like the strip effect created by the eyelets.
Kaali. Very pretty and nicely detailed in a quiet, subtle way. The picot edging and the rose and white slipped stitch effect at the cuff really add to the look.
Tevara. Love the back of this, but I wouldn't include the slit at the back neck and I'd fix those dropped shoulders and add some shaping.
Thessaly. Very much like this one, which is so very wearable and polished it could be worn almost anywhere.
Serafine. Simple but effective. That's a clever way of integrating the pocket into the design.
Asklov. Nice! That leaf tracing motif is ever so pretty.
