Joyful photos, clear instructions, excellent support and FUN have been the focus of our work since the beginning. Our new website is designed for clarity and simplicity – to make it easy for you to browse both our patterns and the hundreds of free resources and tutorials we have developed over the years.
Now you can enjoy Tin Can Knits inspiration in your pocket or at your desk! We designed the site to be easy-to-read on your phone, tablet, or computer.
While the new website design focuses on simplicity, we’ve also made each of our over 160 patterns more deeply connected. Every design now includes a ‘pattern details’ button. Clicking it will reveal all the nitty-gritty information about size, gauge, needles, construction, relevant technique tutorials, and more!
Alexa and I have been developing knitting tutorials for a decade – check them out! Browse by topic, or search to see if we have the tutorial you’re looking for. For example, there are 28 tutorials on our list of Colourwork Tutorials alone!
More fun photos
We’ve taken A LOT of fun photos over the years, and our new site lets you enjoy many more of them in all their big, bright, goofy glory! For example, check out the free Flax Sweater pattern to browse some of the dozens of Flax sweaters we’ve knit over the years.
We’ve also added several pages specifically for craft industry folks. We have free teaching materials to help knitting instructors find class materials and inspiration, and wholesale information to make it easy for you to carry our most popular products.
Our story, our values
Over the past couple of years, Alexa and I have been thinking a lot about our values – who we are and what kind of work we want Tin Can Knits to do going forward. You can read more about the story of our business and the values that shape our work on the About and Story pages.
What do you think?
We’d love your feedback – if you find aspects of the site that don’t work for you, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alexa and I are a two-person team, and while we’ve done user testing, there will be elements that we have missed! We want this website to work for you, so please share your thoughts with us. We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you enjoy the new website!
