Crochet Heart Afghan



Heart Afghan

Designed By Esther Leavitt

Today I am adding Heart Afghan. I made this pattern a while ago but have not put it up yet. In the next couple weeks I will be doing more crochet items. This was a fun Crochet craft to do. This gives a little break from the Holiday crafts.:)


This blanket involves working with two yarns at the same time and being able to rotate working with them in within the same row. This is done by working with one string at a time while the other string is worked around and brought along.
