Crochet Heart Afghan

"Heart shaped granny square"

Are you looking for some crochet heart patterns and ideas? Here is one way to make up the hearts into the neatest afghan. This is also a perfect pattern for using up leftover yarn. Make the squares up in different colors and the last boarder row in all the same color to pull them together.

Crochet afghans

Many times a crochet afghan single size can so easily be turned into many baby blanket patterns by just changing the colors and adjusting the size of yarn or hook. Especially when a afghan is made up of blocks or granny squares.

This is one of those crochet heart patterns that also could be an adorable baby blanket. Picture it made up in pink and white, or yellow, green and white. Just make fewer squares and adjust edging and you have a new pattern.
