Emily Wessel

Hi! I’m Emily Wessel, I design fun-to-knit patterns and helpful technique tutorials. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland with my husband and two kids, where I like to run, knit, learn languages, and hang out with friends. I am co-founder and designer at Tin Can Knits -

    I love, love, love your patterns (and that you are Canadian!) I own a yarn store in southwestern Ontario and your patterns sell really well! Thanks for being such great designers

    Are the free patterns going to be free for a long while, or should I just start madly downloading them? :)

      Haha, excellent question, these are free forever!

    Thank you both so much. You’re very, very generous. Your free patterns are just as beautiful as the ones we have to pay for. I’ll be a TCK fan for life. :D

    Wow, these are GREAT! Thanks for sharing! I especially love Estuary and the Rye socks. I’ve never knit socks before and these would be perfect!
