Knitting: Headband
Looking for a quick gift? This cozy headband uses a number of techniques you may not have tried before. It was written as a tutorial project for our blog readers, but we’d love to have you try it too.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
The hat is lightweight and comfortable to wear and interesting to knit as well with lots of new knitting tweaks you’ll want to use in your other projects. These are techniques that have been introduced with other Knitting Nuances patterns and include: the Resilient Cast On, Showy Decrease and Double Decker Hat Top.
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
The Showy Rib
Knitting: Scarf
This super sized rib is perfect for today’s oversized scarves. The Showy Canyon rib is a simple modification of the traditional k1, p2 rib, but the impact of using the Showy Decrease is dramatic! It’s hard to show in photos, but once you try it you’ll be amazed.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Introducing the Flat i-Cord!
Knitting: Scarf
Introducing the Flat i-Cord!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Embossed Leaf hat is all about contrast - both color and texture. The hat starts with a 2-color cast on that’s been designed to provide some give, an important feature for hat brims. The color continues in the Showy Decreases. If you haven’t tried our Showy Decrease yet it’s a modification of the k2tog decrease that adds height and texture t...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Heliosphere is the first of our hat patterns that start to show you the real power of Showy Decreases when designing hat tops. We first published the Vortex, Ripcord and Yosemite hats to introduce some of these new techniques in simpler ways. This Heliosphere hat adds more drama with a distinctive pattern that hides the decreases in plain sight....
Knitting: Scarf
The Manchester scarf is part of our 3-pattern free Ravelry eBook designed to introduce knitters to the Showy and Subtle Decrease. These decreases allow knitters to work with pattern stitches in a new way. The Showy Decrease rises up off the face of stockinette adding a design element that doesn’t require Reverse Stockinette to show.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Tranquility Shawl is pretty inside and out. Not only do the Showy Decreases update the familiar leaf pattern with clean more contemporary lines that rise up off the surface. The design also pays careful attention to the edge stitches. It starts with the Resilient Cast on, a decorative version of the long-tail cast on that has the added benef...
Knitting: Poncho
The scarf is knit in the round and includes subtle shaping to improve the drape compared to typical tube scarves. It’s my interpretation of a thick and thin concept that’s been popular for years, updated for current styles and the new yarns available.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
If you’ve ever driven by fields of freshly planted crops you’ll recognize the inspiration for this simple but elegant shawl. Rows of plants separated by a mound of fresh soil. The symmetry of man and beauty of nature.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Note on Pattern Ordering
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
The Parallelity Scarf is now part of our free Ravelry e-book that introduces the Showy & Subtle Decrease in simpler patterns.
Knitting: Scarf, Throw, Baby Blanket
The diamond shapes in this pattern rise up off the smooth surface of the stockinette thanks to the Showy Decrease, a modification of the standard k2tog or ssk decrease that adds height and texture to patterns. Another benefit of this technique is that right and left leaning decreases are perfectly matched.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Rip Cord Hat is the second in a trio of patterns designed to introduce and demonstrate various uses for the Showy & Subtle Decrease. The Showy Decrease is a modification of the standard k2tog or ssk decrease that adds height and texture to patterns. This one builds upon the diagonal showy lines used in the Vortex Hat with two different t...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Knitting Nuance patterns are designed to introduce new or modified knitting techniques and the Vortex Hat has three. Take a closer look and you’ll notice the spiral design sits up on the front of the smooth stockinette. That’s because they use our new Showy Decrease, a modification of the k2tog decrease that adds height and texture to stockinett...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
There’s more (or actually less) to this hat than meets the eye!
Knitting: Baby Blanket
If you love Log Cabin blankets, you’re sure to love this non-Garter stitch version. Garter-stitch log cabin blankets are wonderful, but we found some stitch patterns that allowed the same ease of construction while being just a little more…well…interesting than “knit every row until your fingers fall off.” The blanket sta...
