Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, Pom Pom also celebrates the joy of making, without taking themselves too seriously!
Woolens includes 11 new patterns by designer Jared Flood, founder and creative director of Brooklyn Tweed. From hats and cowls to scarves, shawls, and wraps, projects suitable for adventurous beginners and seasoned knitters abound.
Several patterns in the book offer multiple design pathways that allow the maker to customize the garment according to personal taste. Many designs are unisex. A thorough techniques section shepherds knitters through the patterns and serves as a valuable standalone reference resource.
Flood’s lavish photography kindles the imagination and inspires creative knitters to original interpretations. Woolens makes a wonderful gift for a knitting friend and is a worthy addition to any knitting library.

The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands have a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain’s most northerly native sheep breed and collecting its high-quality wool. This is part of a practice known as crofting, which is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age old traditions.
We had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre world-renowned for its fineness, warmth and strength. We were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.
To complement this range, we asked the talented Sarah Hatton to design a collection of garments and accessories that were practical yet distinctive. The garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn.
With designs for both him and her, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn to create something truly special.
