Designers Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles.
Moon and Turtle: Knitting Patterns with Variations contains 9 hand knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy, urban aesthetic, reflecting Kiyomi and Sachiko’s life in Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada.
All the designs are customisable - body and sleeve-length adjustments, different necklines and gender neutral patterns - so that they can be worn by as many people as possible.
The duality associated with identical twins is thoughtfully and intelligently embedded into every aspect of Moon and Turtle. 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.
