Black beauty is a blackwork pattern from Inspirations magazine no 95. It is worked in different weights of black thread to provide the shading effect. I used 5 weights, from light to heavy:

  1. Monosilk black
  2. DMC Sewing thread #310 black
  3. Soie perlee
  4. Soie d’Alger black, 1 strand
  5. DMC stranded cotton #310, 2 threads
