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.
The crochet pattern includes instructions so you can make the blanket in carseat-throw size. However, if you have a different measurement, you can use the instructions to make the blanket in any size you wish!
