little boy blue (heart) blanket
90% cotton, 10% silk, crochet
Can you feel the love of hearts I have right now?
this blankie is a generous cot size…
and felt like it took forever using the 2.25mm hook…
but I am feeling the love for it… It’s the second heart blanket I’ve made and I’m still loving this pattern… although you do end up with a LOT of ends to weave in! Not exactly the most enjoyable part of crochet but well worth the effort when it produces a blanket full of hearts.
I finished the edge with a couple of rounds of single crochet in alternating colours, followed by my own little made up picot edge creating gentle little delicate curves. Well, I’m sure someone else has written a pattern like this edge, but I just sat there and played around with a variety of stitch combinations until I came up with this one. So, was it made up by me? Yes… Is it an original stitch combo? Probably not. But I had fun creating it. In fact I really heart making heart blankets – the colour and pattern combinations are endless.
Ahhh, now to deciding on which crafty project becomes a reality next!
I sense some pinteresting inspiration coming on….

Your blanket is gorgeous! Looks so delicate and precious and the colour combo is just too sweet!
Thanks Maryanne, I reckon you just can’t go wrong with blue hearts – but then I am a little biased when it comes to blue 🙂
I love this blanky and again your edging! I did find a crochet book with this pattern and it’s one of my started but not yet finished projects….not sure I’m happy with my color choices so it’s waiting on me to decide.
Thanks Becky, sometimes we need a little time for the colours to grow on us don’t we 🙂
