Sachiko and Kiyomi Bugrin are twin handknit designers from Toronto/Tkaronto, Canada.
As Yonsei, fourth generation Japanese Canadians, they often found themselves in the care of their Nisei grandmother who, among other things, taught them how to knit.
In their first printed collaborative collection, Sachiko and Kiyomi have created nine handknitting pattern designs, each with variable options and the intention that they can be worn by as many people as possible.
Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy urban aesthetic, reflecting the twins’ life in Toronto.
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 colourwork, paired with simply constructed garments, means that Moon and Turtle is a fabulous step up from pattern books such as Ready Set Raglan and Take Heart.
See Moon and Turtle page on ravelry for more information about the patterns included.
