Emily Wessel

I am one of the founders of Tin Can Knits; we create fun, fresh knitting patterns and books. I blog all about it here, and I invite you to get in touch by signing up for our email updates!


My design partner is the creative and high-energy Alexa Ludeman. We share a passion for designs that are modern but retro, classy but sometimes a little kitschy, and always bold and fun-to-create.

You can see all of our patterns on our website,
or by checking out Tin Can Knits here on ravelry.

Enjoy!
♥ Emily Wessel


If you own a yarn shop and would like to carry my book or individual patterns in print, our wholesale info is here!
