Heart Granny

This lovely Heart Granny crochet pattern was given to me by a dear friend, and I’ve really gone to work with it…

Heart centre granny square

It can be used in lots of fun ways, from sweet little gifts to great granny blankets! Just some examples:
Soap Cushion Lovely, sweet smelling little soap cushion

Heart Granny Pillow Case

This pillowcase-to-be will look very nice in our Portugese apartment; click here to see if you think it fits ;-)

Heart Granny Blanket Hearts all over!

Colorful and easy!



I used various materials; cotton for the soap-cushion and the pillow case; acryl yarn for the blankets. But feel free to experiment – the thicker your yarn, the larger your squares will be. Use 3 matching colors (A, B and C in the pattern) of your own choice. Off we go…..
