“ FOLLOW YOUR HEART ”
Crochet blanket pattern

Follow your heart baby blanket is a good description of my moto follow your heart… I saw that heart chain in one youtube video and I wished to make something with it. It took me so much time I have thrown the blanket sample as a WIP a few times , but as a good friend of mine is used to say – there is right time for everything… So one day i woke up and get my heart blanket on my hook again … and this is the final result. I hope that you will really enjoy making this blanket. It really works up very quickly I made my heart chains just in 1 night ( maybe I was just too eager for the result).As I said I really enjoyed making these heart chains and I have a few more projects with them… Happy crochet…

Tips and advice:
1. Read the pattern carefully , look at the pictures and it will be more understandable if
something is not easy to understand.
2. If you wish you can make this blanket from scrap yarn, the heart chain is not yarn
consuming.
3. If you use different kind of yarn or different weight there will be difference and the
heart chains length may vary even if there are same number of hearts.

Start with making the heart chains
I made my blanket with 31 hearts on each chain. If you wish you can make your heart chain with more or less hearts it depends on your yarn weight and your hook. If you use worsted weight or aran weight yarn your hearts will be bigger and then you will need 20-25 hearts to meet the measurements you need your blanket to be. Or if you use baby weight or fingering or even sport but you crochet tighter you will need to make your chain with 35-40 hearts.

Heart chain pattern:
Start with ch3, Insert the hook in the 3rd ch from hook and pull a loop, * YO and pull a loop* rep 5 times, you should have 11 loops on your hook , now pull through the hook the first 2 loops, * YO , pull through the hook 3 of the loops* rep 4 times, Now you should have 2 loops left in your hook , get the loops out of the hook and turn your work , now insert the loops on your hook again, YO and pull loops through the hook. YO, insert the hook in the 1st ch of the ch-3 we made in the beginning, * YO and pull a loop* rep 5 times, You should have 13 loops on your hook, now pull through the hook the first 2 loops, * YO, pull through the hook 3 of the loops* rep 5 times, now you should have 2 loops left in your hook ,YO and pull the 2 loops through the hook – the first heart is done.

2nd heart and all after it are made the same — >
Now continue with the second heart-

Ch2, and insert the hook in the 2 loops stitch that we have finished our prev heart as shown in the picture bellow:

And now just repeat the same steps as the first heart – * YO and pull a loop* rep 5 times, you should have 11 loops on your hook , now pull through the hook the first 2 loops, * YO , pull through the hook 3 of the loops* rep 4 times, Now you should have 2 loops left in your hook , get the loops out of the hook and turn your work , now insert the loops on your hook again, YO and pull loops through the hook. YO, insert the hook in the center loop of the heart, * YO and pull a loop* rep 5 times, You should have 13 loops on your hook, now pull through the hook the first 2 loops, * YO, pull through the hook 3 of the loops* rep 5 times, now you should have 2 loops left in your hook, YO and pull the 2 loops through the hook .
Making the heart chain in pictures:
Heart 1 ->

The left side of heart : Insert the hook in the 1st st of the beg ch-3 – it is the center of the
heart .In the picture bellow it is shown with needle where to insert the hook .

Heart 2 in pictures :

Make as many heart chain as you wish . I used 16 different color heart chains. Please
consider that after we join the heart chains it will be 1,5inc= 4cm for each color sequence.
So if you would like your blanket to be 80cm height you should have 19 heart chains =
19x4cm = 76cm + border it will be 80-82cm height.
Make you’re the heart chain that you will use for your first color last so we can directly
continue with joining chains without cutting the yarn .
