This heart stitch crochet blanket is a bit of a milestone. It’s a pattern that has been sitting in my archives, needing to be cleaned up, reworked and rephotographed.

This crochet blanket is a milestone because it was my first ever blanket! It’s not only my first-ever blanket design but my first crochet blanket project ever.

Those of you who make afghans regularly, I salute you. No one but crocheters (and knitters) understand the time and work that goes into a handmade yarn afghan or blanket. 

So. Much. Time. 

Someday I will attempt to make a bed-sized afghan, but it might have to wait until my kids are in school and I have a bit more time on my hands (and maybe a ton of chunky weight yarn!).

I’ve had this lovely self-striping yarn in my possession for a while, trying to find the perfect project for it (I am sure you understand!). I wanted to see how the little hearts looked in all the different colors.

This yarn is called Felici by WeCrochet.

It does make those little hearts look so cute! I really love this yarn color way, except the gray color sort of melts into the background. It still turned out quite lovely.

I changed the pattern ever so slightly from the original 6-year-old version to be easier to work, so it looks just slightly different.

However, I wanted you to see how it looked with two solid colors, so I am leaving in a few of these older photos.

  1. I’ve crocheted a few of the Puppy Love hats, so I may give the blanket a try. My concern is always “what will it look like on the backside of blanket”? With the colours being carried.
    Love the pattern :)

    1. It looks the same on both sides! You only carry the gray through one row, the colored heart rows goes up the side, and you will hide that with the border at the end.

  2. I congratulate you on your hard work and quite well done too!!! I am saving this ADORABLE pattern and will share it as well :) Thank you so much! xoxo
