Say hello to your new favourite designer duo, Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin, twin handknit designers from Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada!
We’ve long admired the twins’ talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and we’re honoured to publish their first collaborative book, Moon and Turtle: Knitting Patterns with Variations!
Moon and Turtle contains 9 knitting patterns (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy, urban aesthetic! All the designs are customizable – think tall versions, adjustable sleeve lengths, different necklines, and gender-neutral patterns – so that they can be worn by as many people as possible!
The duality associated with identical twins is thoughtfully embedded into every aspect of Moon and Turtle. From the designs 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. We were charmed by Moon and Turtle, and we’re sure you will be, too!
