Knitting Nuances

A 2015 – 2018 Top 100 Knitting Blog!

About Our Website

Find More Information Easily at

While I love blogging it’s hard to organize the material the way you want. That’s why our website is organized by topic. Looking for a pattern, specific technique or free downloads? Just click over to the website.

Each project page has links to related Nuances, blog posts and photos so you can find everything you need to knit that pattern.

Our Designs: All our patterns are available in order of complexity (Getting Started, Next Steps and Kicking it Up a Notch) and by category (hats, scarves, etc.). We also have an electronic Look Book you can browse through online.

The Flat i-Cord

Our Techniques: Here you can download free tutorials for all of our “Nuances”. Major Nuances announced to date include the Showy and Subtle Decrease, Resilient Cast On, Duality Cast On, Double Decker Hat Top, Showy Rib and the fabulous (if I do say so myself!) Flat i-Cord.

There are also a bunch of fun Nuance-lettes or small tweaks and links to help for some existing knitting techniques we use.

Free Downloads: We give away a lot of information for free; patterns, tutorials and even a knitting calendar. This page has them all.

Basic Knitting Tips: Dozens of knitting tips and photo tutorials dealing with everyday knitting techniques. Our Provisional Crochet Cast on photo tutorial is one of the most popular.

Got Questions? We’ve got answers in this section of our web site, including contact information.

And if you are a Knitting Designer or Local Yarn Shop we have areas to support you too.

    I am a blog follower, but don’t seem to have a Password to get into the Bonus Material site. Could you let me know what I need to do please.

      The password should appear under the “You are Following this blog” on the side of any post and at the bottom of the blog home page. I will email you the password so you don’t have to worry about it!

    I am using Chroms, and still can’t find the magic password needed. I really like your techniques. I have tried following several times but cant seem to find the password anywhere.

      Just make sure you use a capital “N” in Nuances and it should work. Don’t kill your computer!! I’ll email it to you if you continue to have any problems. Laura 🙂

    I love your techniques! But – I am a very visual learner, I need to see someone doing something to really get it. Please tell me you have some videos somewhere I can watch!??

      Janice, I agree and they are on the list of things to do, but I’m afraid there are not any yet. I am going to try one today for the new Woven Cast On that is the subject of the next blog post. Laura

    The things I can see look interesting

    But searching is not working on my iPhone

    I’m looking for a Tunisian crochet blanket I saw on Facebook

    Hi Laura, I’m doing a sample swatch for the mistral blanket. I like the hatch edge for the sides. I was wondering if there’s something I could do on the bottom instead of getting right into the pattern. Like knitting something foe a few rows. Thanks

      Hi Jean, I did think about that as well but wanted the cable-like pattern to start and stop right at the edges. You could use the Resilient Cast On and Bind Off for a nubby edge. They match pretty well and aren’t too bulky. You can find the info in the Edges section of the blog. The cast on is on the second page.

What do you think?
