Moon and Turtle
This product is currently sold out.
Kiyomi and Sachiko have a talent for infusing unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles. Moon and Turtle is the twins’ first collaborative collection. This sweet, fresh pattern book 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. Playful colorwork, paired with simply constructed garments, means that Moon and Turtle is a fabulous step up from other beloved pattern books from Pom Pom Magazine such as Ready Set Raglan. Kiyomi and Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs.
Your purchase of the print book also includes access to a digital copy through Ravelry with the digital download code in the back of your copy.
