I don't think there is, but on the other hand depending on the piece you can often get away with A because you won't need more levels to create smoothness.

Pattern B looks like lace!

Great point! Seems like B would be much better for longer gradients or larger areas - but for smaller things the grid is more visible.

I've done a bit of work on dithering in the past, both with hand drawn art and in the area of programming to see how to get the best results. I'll post what I came up with in a separate thread shortly as it might be of interest to some people here.
