Kiyomi and Sachiko’s talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles. Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (four garments and five accessories) that 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’ thoughts to the book's title, 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. Playful colourwork, paired with constructed garments, means Moon and Turtle is a significant step up from pattern books such as Ready Set Raglan and Take Heart. Kiyomi and Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is evident and shines through their words and designs.
