B&W knitted blankets.

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

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.
