Big Heart Baby Blanket
Spread some love with the Big Heart Baby Blanket! This sweet and simple pattern has been newly updated to include a self-striping rainbow yarn as the main color and a solid white heart, but it also looks great in two solid colors. The tapestry crochet technique is used to add a modern heart to this sweet baby blanket; some experience with crochet colorwork is recommended but not necessary. The pattern includes links to video and blog tutorials on how to learn tapestry crochet. The heart instructions are charted only, but the chart is a simple two color chart that shows where to change colors.
