The beloved author and designer Cecelia Campochiaro has the gift of seeing knitting at its most elemental, exploring knitted fabrics at stitch level, from the ground up. Cecelia first introduced us to her groundbreaking concept of sequence knitting, and we’ve been knitting sequence projects ever since. Now, she’s showing us another irresistible sort of knitting.
Marling is the effect we get when we combine strands of different fiber, weight, or color.
This Field Guide is a tantalizing tasting menu of different types of marling. The effects are amazing, and amazingly intuitive to create. The fabrics are a sensory joy to knit, and they are beautiful to wear.
These five designs are elegant canvases for your marling explorations.

PRE-ORDER Interpretations | Volume 8
Save $ -28.50
This item is for a pre-order and will ship out on release date, December 7th. Any items purchased with a pre-order will ship together.
This series follows the journey of two friends from opposite sides of the world combining their love of their countries (Argentina and Finland) and beautiful knitwear. Volume 1 marked the beginning of an entirely new approach to designing, and their dream project has evolved to bring your their 8th volume.
Each volume includes six themes: six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes. The 6 words Joji and Veera have chosen for their new collection are Challenge, Patience, Anticipation, Pace, Compassion and Emphasis! These lovely books are destined to become collector's items, not to mention beautiful resources of patterns that you’re going to want to come back to time and again.
Following on from Volume 7, this year is the second time that the two designers couldn’t be together to shoot the pattern photography for Interpretations. Due to travel restrictions, Joji and Veera shot their photos in their respective homelands of Argentina and Finland. Nevertheless, we think this volume is just as cohesive as its predecessors, and reflects the hard work Joji and Veera put into making Volume 8 during a global pandemic!
Volume 8 features 12 garment and accessory knitting patterns.

Pom Pom | Issue 39 | Winter 2021
Save $ -18.50
The knit and crochet designs in Issue 39 are inspired by rhythm! Our Winter 2021 collection is packed with patterns which honour echoes, explore semitonal shifts in colour, and include repeating motifs to allow you to get into a stitching groove. We love how the designers have taken our auditory theme and created patterns which highlight the aspects of rhythm we see, such as written musical scores and the visual representation of soundwaves. No matter at what tempo you craft, there’s a winter project for you here!
Featuring designs by: JUDITH BRAND, ASTRID COLDING SIVERTSEN, ADELLA DUTRA, ANA D, TETYANA VYAZOVSKA, JOHANNA KUNIN, NIDHI KANSAL, KEIKO KIKUNO, CLEO MALONE, VALERIE NG
Artist, maker, and stylist Lydia Morrow was the creative director for this issue’s photoshoot! We’ve long admired Lydia’s jazzy sense of style, so we’re honoured to publish her vision in our pages. After you’ve found your crafting cadence, enjoy the two articles in Issue 39. In ‘Rhythms of Handiwork’, Felicity (Felix) Ford explores the communal and historical relationship between craft and rhythm, while Claudia Khan writes touchingly about the delicate melody of parenthood, partnership, and time in her article, ‘A Family Song’. Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin are the authors of this issue’s handmade lip balm tutorial, so you can combat chapped lips brought on by cold weather and even have some non-knitted handmade gifts ready for the festive season.
