While color is pretty, B&W is an Art form.
Although colors can be stunning, black and white patterns have an elegant and subdued simplicity that makes them timeless and endearing. Undoubtedly, two-tone designs lend themselves very well to repeating, geometric motifs that highlight the interplay of light and dark and thrive on the contrast. Therefore, the motifs themselves can be as simple or intricate as the crocheter wants to make them, and serve to support the yin-yang relationship of the colors in a B&W blanket. As usual, a link to free patterns is included under the photos.
