Monk's Belt 101

Two-Block Patterns: any or all blocks may vary in height or width or both.

Monk's Belt is usually in the ratio of one to three, and groups are in the ratio of three to five. And a lot can be done with color. For this new project I am working on I will use a white warp with two colors of weft. I have two colors of blue and two shades of pink to use. I can either use the pink/blue or pink/pink, or blue/blue.... So color will be an important factor in this project. I will sample to find the color combination I like best.

And what is this mysterious project I am attempting, you ask? A couple of lap robes for a couple of special ladies.
