Love Note by Tin Can Knits

This week, we are putting the spotlight on one of our favourite sweaters: Love Note by Tin Can Knits.  To date, we have knit two of them and there will be more to come.  It has become such a popular pattern (there's almost 10,000 projects on Ravelry!) and it's easy to see why.  It's SUPER quick to knit, fits beautifully and is a really fun and relaxing project.  This gorgeous sweater is knit holding two strands of yarn together, one sock weight and the other mohair silk lace.  The fabric that you get from both yarns is so soft and cosy; plus it's a joy to put together different colours to obtain unique effects.

To help you choose your colours, we have put together five fabulous combinations.  Let's have a look.



One of the things we love about Tin Can Knits patterns is the range of sizes offered.  For the Love Note sweater, sizes range from baby all the way to 5XL.  They suggest choosing a size that is between 4 and 12” larger than your actual chest measurement.  The pattern is meant to be worn with lots of ease.  You can also choose between cropped and regular lengths.

0-6 mo (6-12 mo, 1-2 yrs, 2-4 yrs, 4-6 yrs, 6-8 yrs, 8-10 yrs, Adult XS, S, M, L, XL-XXL, 3XL-4XL, 5XL)

Finished Chest Measurement: 24.5 (25.5, 26.5, 28.6, 30.5, 32.5, 34.5, 38.5, 41.5, 44.5, 48.5, 56.5, 66.5, 72.5”).

Below we have calculated the yardages for you and converted this into the number of skeins needed.


Note: If your size says 2, you will need 2 skeins of Uptown Sock and 2 skeins of Mohair Silk Lace

Cropped length: 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3) skeins each of Uptown Sock and Mohair Silk Lace.

Regular length: 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4) skeins each of Uptown Sock and Mohair Silk Lace.
