Tin Can Knits’ Alexa Ludeman – May 9th, 2023

Alexa and Emily write of their beginnings…”One fateful day years ago, the two of us met while working at a knit shop in Vancouver, Canada. We came from different career paths (Alexa from teaching and Emily from architecture), but had both begun to dabble in pattern design. In 2010, we headed out for a weekend visit to Tofino, one of our favourite places. At the beach, walking and talking under a starry sky the idea of Tin Can Knits began. We dreamed of publishing a book. In 2011 we began to dream bigger, aiming to turn knit design into a day job. Now, 13 years later, we have a catalog of 193 patterns and 11 collections, and it keeps on growing!”
