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.

There are those who think color photography is the greatest thing since sliced bread; and there are those who think that black-and-white is the only true art form. It’s a bit similar in crocheting, the same pattern done in polychrome and monochrome can give radically different results. Take a look, peruse and please let us know – which do you think is “the one” for you? A Poly or Mono square, you decide, or don’t decide at all and make both!!

It’s noteworthy that there are no wrong choices here. Whatever path you take, it will be an expression of your taste, thoughts and personality. It’s also significant that in between full mono and full poly there are subtle gradations. and increments of color, where a colorful accent, such as a small central rosette, will highlight the beauty of the monochrome background rather than overpower it. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that you can use the infinite versatility and endless variability of the crochet art to reach your decorative goals.

  2. I love it both ways! In multi-colors, it is very fun and playful and in monochrome, very elegant. It depends where you want to put it and which mood you are going for. And of course it could be done in a multitude of other color combinations.
