Two colour crochet   Crochet - for children ond beginners  
Tofarvet hækling - Two Colour Crochet
Two-coloured crochet is NOT only black and white, but in this book I have used black and white only.
It gives a calm, balance and harmony. Without other colours to "disturb", there is more focus on the graphic expression. Using only black and white the contrast steps forward and gets the attention.
The book is ment as an inspiration for you to use the colours - not only as a choice of pattern but for you to fill in your own colours and to make your own combinations.

Welcome to my creative universe

I started blogging in July 2008 and the blog Karen Klarbæks Verden soon became a place for all my crochet recipes and for the people who wanted to use them.
The blog is my private piece of heaven, for me and for others who are interested in crochet, handicraft and being creative.

I am clothing designer by education with a degree from Kolding Kunsthåndværkerskole in Denmark(1994) and I have been working as Product Developer for Lene Bjerre Design, Stof & Stil (interior) and at the moment - Søstrene Grene (hobby division). When I'm not working I enjoy the creative universe and especially crochet. So far I have developed more than 50 crochet recipes and still counting.
As of August 1, 2013 I have been hired as manager of business- and concept development at the Danish chain of book stores - Bog & Idé.

With the help of contacts from my blog, I have now started to publish e-books.

The first e-book is a crochet book for children and beginners to crochet. In the book you will learn some of the fundamental techniques. With the help of slow speed video you wil learn how to crochet. The book contains lots of step-by-step photos and I will guide you through three simple and yet useful recipes. You can find the e-book at

More e-books with more recipes are already in the making, so look out!
