From Pom Pom Press:
Weâve long admired Sachiko and Kiyomi Burginâs talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and weâre honoured to publish the twinsâ first collaborative collection. Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy urban aesthetic, reflecting the twinsâ life in Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada.
Much like Sachiko and Kiyomi 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 authorsâ musings, to the title of the book itself, thereâs 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 62â chest, and contain body and sleeve length adjustments in the hope that this book can be enjoyed by many knitters for years to come. Playful colourwork, paired with simply constructed garments, means that Moon and Turtle is a fabulous step up from pattern books such as Ready Set Raglan and Take Heart. Kiyomi and Sachikoâs sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs. We were charmed by Moon and Turtle and weâre sure you will be, too!
This is a pre-order item. It will be available for shipping or pickup the week of August 16th.
