Tin Can Knits is the collaboration of two Canadian designers; Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel.
With accessible and clearly written patterns, beautiful photography and heartfelt stories, and we aim to share our love of knitting, and inspire you to do the same!
From our very first book in 2011 (featuring Alexa’s first baby, Hunter), our catalog of popular knitting patterns has grown along with our families! We love to design and knit, and most of all we love to share our passion with other knitters.
Alexa lives in her hometown of Port Moody, Canada with her husband Gary and three kids: Hunter, Jones and Bodhi. With a background in teaching and photography, she brings a discerning eye and a creative flair to Tin Can Knits.
Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Emily is an expat living in Edinburgh, Scotland, with her husband John and son Max. With a background in architecture, she brings her clear design sense and project management skills to Tin Can Knits.
