errata

Tin Can Knits patterns are professionally tech edited. Despite this, errors occasionally occur.

Electronic copies of patterns are updated as soon as the error is identified, and buyers are contacted. However, this is not possible for our print books, and therefore the errata listed below apply primarily to print books and patterns.

If you have a question, comment or concern, or have found an error in one of our patterns, please contact us at tincanknits@gmail.com. We appreciate our cutomers' feedback, and it is very helpful when you bring problems to our attention.
