Moon and Turtle: Knitting Patterns with Variations by Kiyomi & Sachiko Burgin

Moon and Turtle from Pom Pom Press is a collection of Knitting Patterns with Variations by talented twin sisters Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin.

We first came across Sachiko’s work when she first published the Cesium sweater pattern in Issue 19 of Pom Pom Quarterly, knitted in Mountain Mohair by Green Mountain Spinnery. We loved it so much that we created our own sample, and we’re so pleased to see it reimagined in this book as a cardigan! Read more about our ‘Sample Spotlight’ for Cesium on our blog.

We’ve long admired Kiyomi and Sachiko’s talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and we’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 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. 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! – Pom Pom Press
