I could get quite addicted to this pattern, playing around with different yarns and shades to give to my friends and family to suit their personalities or interiors!
I love creating easy to knit designs. I love combining yarns of beautiful quality with the simplest of stitches to create truly unique items that are a joy to knit.
This straightforward pattern has no complicated abbreviations or tricky techniques.
It is a pattern you can knit with pride and delight!

I have also designed an Oddments Crochet Cushion which uses the small oddments of yarn that are left when you have finished knitting the Love Hearts Blanket. It’s a free pattern on my blog, and you can click here to view it!
