Hearts, they say you care year round, not just on Valentine’s.

Hearts are a great theme for crocheting projects, be they on toys, pillows, or as below, on blankets. In fact, a it is just about the ideal cover for a kid’s bed, a throw in a nursery or something for the bedroom. In general, the patterns are easy and don’t require much in the way of fancy yarns or the knowledge of a million stitches. Indeed, a few basic techniques and some yarn ends will get you well on the way to a blanket of hearts.

Colorful Heart Blanket

If a caleidoscope of colors is your thing, as indeed it is for many of us, then you can’t go far wrong with the colorful heart blanket. This is a square-based cover with a dense, drapy structure and crisp, well defined borders between the squares. Consequently, you can multiply the colors to infinity, but the border stops them from clashing.
