This Puffy Heart Crochet pattern is perfect for Valentines Day, or any day!
Using Bernat Blanket Yarn this pattern works up quickly so you can make one for someone special in time for Valentine's Day, or just because. With the wide ranges of colors offered in this yarn you are sure to find one that would be perfect for you.
I created one for my front room for Valentine's Day, and also one to add to the throw pillows on my bed. I love that the blue blanket yarn works perfectly with my décor and can be used year round.
For this project you will only need a few supplies.
