I am a huge fan of Tin Can Knits and this book is just lovely with several really useful patterns including one of their best cardigans (Lush). All their patterns are well laid out and read well too - numerous sizes and tips included. This was one of their earlier books and remains a very good and practical pattern book.
Tin Can Knits is the design collaboration of Alexa and Emily. Separated by time and distance, they are united by a passion for knitting and design. On opposite ends of this string that ties them together they chatter down the line about stitch definition, loft, lace, cables and the perfect hand-dyed colourway. While they both enjoy working individually, they find it especially inspiring and rewarding to work as a design team.
