Moon and Turtle
DOWNLOAD CODE AVAILABLE WITH PURCHASE: YES
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!
More About Pom Pom:
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way we’ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, we also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking ourselves too seriously!
Since our kitchen table beginnings, we’ve gone on to feature some of the most well-known and loved independent designers and yarn producers, with some of the less well-known also growing along with us. We are so proud and lucky to be able to say that Pom Pom is now stocked at over 250 locally-owned yarn and craft stores across four continents and 20 countries. At Pom Pom we know that knitters are creative, curious people – so we also include lots of other features we think you’ll enjoy – from cocktail recipes, to dyeing tutorials, to articles about 18th century paper cut artists! Basically anything we think will inspire you. We also take pride in every detail of our magazine, from the typefaces we use right down to the paper we’re printed on – knitters are tactile people after all! We have always been, and continue to be, printed in the United Kingdom.
Pom Pom continues to grow, and we very much value each and everyone of you along with us on the journey! We are so excited about bringing you more thoughtful, beautiful, joyful, educational, and inspirational knitted (and crocheted!) goodness for a long time to come.
