Meet your new favourite designer duo, Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin! Pom Pom Press has long admired their talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and is honoured to publish the twins’ first collaborative collection. Moon and Turtle: Knitting Patterns with Variations! contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy urban aesthetic, reflecting the twins’ life in Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada.
Much like Kiyomi and Sachiko themselves, Moon and Turtle is truly synergic. The duality associated with identical twins is thoughtfully and intelligently embedded into every aspect of the book. From the designs, to the authors’ musings, to the title of the book itself, there’s a quiet harmony in the idea that two things or people can be visually similar but also appreciably distinct.
The patterns are gender-neutral, graded up to a 62” chest, and contain body and sleeve length adjustments in the hope that this book can be enjoyed by many knitters for years to come. Featuring playful colourwork, paired with simply constructed garments.
Kiyomi and Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs. Pom Pom Press was charmed by Moon and Turtle and they’re sure you will be, too!
This is a soft-cover book available in-store at Urban Yarns and for shipping orders. View pattern images and specifications, or purchase the e-book, here on Ravelry.
