    • I have two favorites – the Bumble hat and the Winding Way socks – wonderful, fun patterns.

      • I taught my SIL to knit with Tin Can Knits basic hat pattern so that’s my fav! Fun time for me. Not sure my SIL loved it as much as I did!

        • So many great designs from Tin Can Knits! I’m all about antler sweater.

      • Flax of course, but I’d love to try Urban Hiker. Great looking sweater/jacket.

      • Lullaby Blanket. So many options!

      • I’ve knit Flax and the Antler cardigan a few times, but my favourite would have to be Moraine (currently in progress, modified to be a steeked cardigan). So excited to wear it this fall!

        • I’m planning to do the same thing after I finish holiday gift knits! It will be a first time for steeking for me, so I’m a little apprehensive.

    • I am smitten with my Harvest cardi! I think the simplicity of the design is absolutely lovely. And I appreciate how clearly they write all their patterns. Currently knitting love note, it is working up so fast!

    • I have to say I am so taken with the snow globe hat…my new favorite. I can’t wait to knit it as our temperatures fall through the 40s.

    • Windswept!

    • My favorite Tin Can Knits design is Antler. I’ve made five of them and have another on the needles.

      • Flax.

        • Flax…

  • Love Note is my favorite, but my grandsons live their Bumble hats.

  • Favorite Tin Can Knits: 1. Bounce baby blanket is still the go-to; 2. Barley hat

  • My favorite has been their Compass sweater … Loved the simple color work on the yoke! . Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Wow! You ask the tough questions! I went back through all the patterns to be sure I was doing them all justice. I had forgotten just how broad and deep their catalog is.

  • Oh my, Strange Brew brought me to color work, I loved Dog Star, Antler though, I have gifted several, And who can over look the baby blanket Bounce? And flax was my first sweater…. Um I guess anything Tin Can Knits is my favorite

  • Posy

  • rye light!

  • my favorite Tin Cat Knits is “Flyaway”

  • Love Note! I have it in my queue in both lace and dk – and I can’t wait to get back to a place where I can easily buy yarn or order online, knowing it will be delivered!

  • Love Note sweater

  • I’ve made the World’s Simplest Mittens which was a great pattern.

  • Penny – V-neck, raglan AND lace – pretty much my idea of a perfect sweater!

  • I have many Tin Can Knits patterns in my favorites on Ravelry, but have yet to make one. Their new collection has really grabbed my attention and I think Nest is my favorite.

  • Gramps! My grandson looks adorable in this sweater. It’s hard to pick just one pattern, I LOVE Tin Can Knits patterns, they are all so well written.

  • It’s very difficult to choose a favorite given the Tin Can array of beautiful designs. My go to baby gift knit is their Beloved hat.

  • Sitka Spruce har and mittens – they’d also be a good fit for Atlas!

  • I love the Antler Cardigan

  • My favorite that I’ve knit: Wheat. My favorite that I haven’t knit yet: the Mountain Mist sweater.

  • Love Note is at the top of my list of their patterns that I want to make, but I also really like North Shore with the mountains and trees in the colorwork. I have made the Simple Yet Effective cowl and it is just that! And it’s free!

  • My favorite Tin Can Knits pattern is the Pop Blanket. I made it for my second grandson when he was born.

  • So many patterns, so little time, but I’m taking the easy way out…. Today, I’m in love with the Snowglobe Hat.

  • The Flax sweater.

  • Strange brew!

  • I think Posy is an amazingly beautiful shawl.

  • Beloved, and Apple Pie hats

  • Viewfinder. So simple and perfect for a special skein.

  • Love the tin can baby bonnet. Knit two years before I had a grandchild!
    Was a late in life one. Their designs are very special.

  • Pop blanket!

  • Love Note!

  • Lovenote!

  • My favorite is the harvest sweater- I made one for my granddaughter who has loved it!

  • It has to be Flax sweater. Made 4 of these for my grandkids so far . Good go to pattern .

  • Fly Away, or Love Note, or Harvest. So many great patterns that I have made multiple times in multiple sizes.

  • Like most people here I have knit many many Tin Can patterns. Not sure why buy Beloved gets me every time. Such a perfect sweet baby hat.

    • *but not buy. I wish I could edit the my above comment.

  • I am in love with the goldfish sweater. I have two new grand babies and cannot wait until they are big enough for this sweater.

  • Strangebrew. My guild did a knit along challenge with that pattern and I FINALLY found a pattern that helped me knit to the correct size! I LOVE my finished sunflower cardi.

  • Strange brew!

  • Antler mittens!

  • Flax light is a great sweater pattern, especially with the added short rows.

  • The Flax sweater and the Antler cardigan.

  • I’ve never looked at Tin Can Knits before, so what a lovely time I just had looking at their page! My favourite must be rockfall; it was a hard choice, but this reminds me of my favourite sweater my grandmother made me. I wore it in kindergarten, and still remember it so fondly.

  • I’ve not knit any yet, but I dearly want lumberjack socks, barley lite hat & grain shawl. Oops, more than 1, can’t help myself!

  • Gramps and Fly Away!

  • Favorite is marshmallow – simple design, but so cozy. Also love Fly Away – but hard to choose even 2.

  • The first Tin Can Knits pattern I ever saw was the Bounce blanket. I just love the colors. It’s the same with Vivid. And by coincidence I’ve just (finally!) jumped on the Love Note Bandwagon and am most of the way through the lace yoke. I can imagine knitting a few of these.

  • They have a wonderful portfolio, don’t they! I’m going with crowd favorite Love Note, that I have yarn for but am yet to knit.

  • Flax

  • Good heavens – so many of their patterns are in my favorites (and library and queue). Love Notes has to have a mention and I could happily knit most all of the hats – especially Apple Pie but if I’m narrowing to one, maybe the Pop blanket.

  • Urban Hiker. Wait! No! Penny. How cruel you are to make us choose.

  • Love Note would be my favorite so far. The new collection looks great, too.

  • Lots of great patterns! I like Antler the best.

  • I love Strange Brew!

  • The Awash scarf is my favorite!

  • Peregrine is my new favorite — love the cables!

  • Flax – a classic

  • Barley! Made loads of these hats for family last Christmas. Love Note, Antler & Estuary are in my queue.

  • Their Anthology hat/cowl recipe is my go to pattern for riffing on other patterns and motifs! Love it.

  • It must have been a scarf long ago – and the yarn really did come in a small tin can. Now I’m wondering where it is and will have to hunt. I kept it because it was so clever.

  • My Favorite Tin Cans Knits pattern is The World’s Simplest Mittens. Time and time again….

  • Beloved Bonnet — it’s so cute and fun to knit!

  • I ❤️❤️❤️ Tin Can Knits designs!! My first sweater was the Flax! I’ve made 3 sweaters from this design! Barley is amazing and I’ve made so many of those!

    I’m already a subscriber and my favorite Tin Can knits pattern is Barley as it was my first. I will be knitting Gramps.

  • Rye socks is my favorite TinCan Knits design. great first sock pattern.

  • So hard to pick just one…love Pop and Vivid…not to mention their hats and mitts

  • Gramps and Flax … hard to choose from all the others, though

  • Hands down, Flax Sweater!!!

  • I have never made a Tin Can Knits pattern. Nonetheless, my favorite is The world’s simplest mittens. I love mittens and want to try this pattern.

  • Just finished another Beloved bonnet in Baby size for 4 month old granddaughter! Time to start working on the Toddler size:) Such an ingenious and beautiful design!

  • So many to choose from! I’ve made Harvest and Barley Light, and have yarn wound for Low-Tide. I’ll make a Gramps one day. But my favourite is probably Goldfish, which I will hopefully make for a grandchild one day :). I’d love a toque in Atlas!

  • I love so many of their designs – it is definitely hard to choose – the last one I made was Peanut – I love all of their baby sweaters – so adorable and great knits – their new book looks amazing – thanks for the giveaway – keeping my fingers crossed (its definitely harder to knit that way lol!)

  • My favorite all time Tin Can knitting pattern is the World’s Simplest Mitten pattern

  • Barley hat – it was my second project I had ever made and I was hooked on Tin Can Knits patterns – I knew that their pattern support would be such that I would be successful! I think i have literally made at least 10 Barley hats – I always recommend Tin Can Knits to all new knitters!

  • Barley hat

  • Spotlight pullover is my favorite. I wish I was better at stranded knitting.

  • Strange Brew – I love this template style pattern

  • Wenlock, love the neckline,
    Thanks for the chance to try out Atlas.

  • OMG I love tin can knits – my favorites are Clayoquot Toque and Gramps, which I have to confess is still a UFO from 2017. The yarn is not soft enough, so I am going to try again with something more suitable, maybe Atlas?? It was started for a boy who’s now 9, but I’ve got a three year old grandson now, so might be able to make it.

    • Oops – I just remembered I made the Malt blanket for the State Fair of Texas and won First Prize!! I forgot it was tin can knits.

  • The antler togue and Gramps sweater. I made an antler hat for my granddaughter and knitting another right now for SIL. Made the Gramps & barley hat for my nieces new baby. Love the size range of their patterns!

  • I made the Snap hat, a lovely and fun marled fabric design.

And gramps was gifted to a family friend – I knit 2 sweaters and the her adorable boys wore these sweaters to their adoption ceremony.

  • Flax Light! Love the size range, which goes from baby through full adult!
