Moon And Turtle


Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) by Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin 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. Playful colorwork is paired with simply constructed garments. Kiyomi and Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs. We are charmed by Moon and Turtle and we’re sure you will be, too!
