I was recently tasked to design an adorable pink baby blanket for a gift and this lovely puff heart concept is what came about! As soon as I heard it had to be a pink frilly blanket, hearts came to mind with a shell ruffle border. I created the puff hearts design using Stitch Fiddle which is a wonderful online tool to create your own charts and graphs to follow when crocheting. I included the chart for everyone to reference if wanted, but also wrote out the entire pattern! This blanket is a quick workup due to the chunky yarn being used so if you are in a pinch and need a blanket to make fast this pattern is the way to go! I hope you everyone enjoys!
