The photos above show these projects crocheted in the black color of Paton's classic wool yarn.
Please note that, while these are beginner-friendly patterns, I do not recommend that total beginners crochet with black yarns, or for that matter, any very dark colored yarns. Why not? It's because it's more difficult to see your stitches when you crochet with dark yarns. Light or bright colors are much easier to see, and they also make for a less frustrating experience when you are learning. After you've really got the hang of crocheting, and you're thoroughly comfortable with recognizing and forming your stitches, then go ahead and try crocheting with some darker colored yarns if you want to.
