explore your creativity this season

We're doing something new and special this holiday: a Hackathon. Start with any Tin Can Knits pattern, add your own inspiration and create something even more unique and special!

Every year in the run up to Christmas, we like to do something a little bit different, special and unique! This year it's knitting along with you to explore how patterns can be hacked, customized, and changed!

Starting now, and ending Tuesday January 17th, join us and knit along - we've got a Facebook Group for you to join in, there are already over 800 knitters participating!

And there is one great SUPERPRIZE for a lucky knitter!

Why Hack It?

We think TCK patterns are pretty great even if you just follow the instructions exactly. But one of the most inspiring aspects of knitting is the way that every creation is truly unique, a woolly nugget of your love, care, and attention. When you hack a design, adjusting it to suit your precise vision, the process and the product can be that much more exciting and uniquely yours.

Check out our Hackathon Pinterest board to see how other knitters have already hacked Tin Can Knits designs... there's a woolly world of inspiration!

The critters are ripping around the in-laws house on a crazed sugar high.

The feast is in the oven, and a glass of somethings special sits next to your comfy seat.

Your hands are itching for some simple satisfaction, and the joy of a project to showcase the beautiful new yarn that has recently found its way into your stash!

Hello Grain! Our latest addition to our free learn-to-knit series, The Simple Collection, Grain isn't really a design, so much as a simple recipe for garter-stitch satisfaction.
