About Our Designs
Here at Tin Can Knits we love all things knitting and design. We love lace, cables, textures, garments, accessories, sizes for all, and we don’t really enjoy seaming. We want the finished items from our patterns to be beautiful and the process of making them to be fun. With clean modern designs and seamless constructions our patterns can be enjoyed on every level.
Our patterns are written in a minimal style, often using charts to illustrate stitch patterns. We are committed to clear and simple pattern writing, fabulous photos, and excellent pattern support. Each of our patterns has been professionally tech edited and test-knit.
