This afghan is perfect gift for any occasions- Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Wedding Day and others.


I used crochet hook in size H (5.00 mm) and 1 whole skein of Red Heart Super Saver (7 oz) in each color for 6 hearts across. I tried my best to keep the pattern simple and easy to follow by color coding. Texts in blue are instructions for the first heart and the texts in red are instructions for the next one.


**Yes, you can use any size of crochet hook, use any yarn brand, type and ply but keep in mind yours will have different size as mine.

Yarn: Medium worsted weight yarn | #4
Crochet Hook: H | 5.00 mm


Stitches & Abbreviations:
FDC - Foundation Double Crochet | Video Tutorial Here
