Pom Pom Magazine has long admired Sachiko and Kiyomi Burgin’s talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and they're honoured to publish the twins’ first collaborative collection. Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy urban aesthetic, reflecting the twins’ life in Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada.
Much like Sachiko and Kiyomi themselves, Moon and Turtle is truly synergistic. 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. 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 Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs. We, at Pom Pom Press, were charmed by Moon and Turtle and we’re sure you will be, too!
About Sachiko and Kiyomi:
Twin sisters Kiyomi and Sachiko are masters of wearable designs for city life that revel in glorious, understated wooliness without looking ‘homemade’. This gender-neutral collection is simple and understated, with straightforward techniques and sizing up to 62-inch chest. But don’t be misled by the lack of fuss; these designs are carefully engineered with a backbone of subtle edginess we see in few other designers working today.
Nine patterns, featuring yarns from Akara Yarn, Briggs & Little, Green Mountain Spinnery, Peace Fleece, Qing Fibre, and Viola.
Graded for chests up to 76cm / 30” - 157cm / 62”. For the garments, at least two different sleeve and body lengths are given.
