PART 2 - EXTENSION OF THE HEART IN BLOOM MOTIF TO A SQUARE - NO HEART MOTIF IN THIS PDF.
Hearts and (more) Flowers - another perfect match!
This pattern is a continuation of the Heart in Bloom Motif. This pattern turns the Heart Motif into a Square which you can use for any granny square based project.
You NEED PART 1 the Heart in Bloom Motif pattern to complete this Square.
The Heart Motif is available here.
Or you can buy both parts (Motif and Square) in a Bundle here.
This design came about when I was playing around with a small heart pattern I found. I wanted to make it bigger so I could use it to make some bunting and I thought a flower in the centre would look cute. It was quickly suggested to me that it would be even better if it was squared up, then you could use it for a blanket, bag or any other amazing project you can make using granny squares.
And so I came up with an idea and here is the result - the Heart in Bloom Square with lovely flowers surrounding the Heart in Bloom Motif and finished with a matching border.
I used 9 squares to create a super sweet baby blanket (see photos above) and the pattern also includes the instructions for both the join and the ruffle border so you can make the blanket too.
The pattern uses a variety of techniques, including working in the 3rd loop, clusters and taller stitches - this pattern is recommended for advanced crocheters though tutorial links and heaps of photos make it accessible for confident intermediate crocheters who are happy concentrating a bit more on a pattern and can follow written instructions.
Approx. 50 meters (54 yards) per square (including heart), 30 meters per square (not including heart) of 8ply (DK) yarn.
I've used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton for my blanket and a test square in Stylecraft Special DK.
4mm & 4.5 mm hook
*You can use any yarn for this pattern with an appropriate hook though the finished size will vary.
17 cms (6 3/4 in) in BWM 8ply cotton
18cm (7 1/8 in) in Stylecraft Special DK
Included in this 23 page PDF pattern:
62 tutorial photos
12 other photos (including a comparison of size between the 2 yarns listed above).
American English crochet terms used throughout.
Crocheted in the round.
Partial charts to assist with join and border.
Clear concise written instructions with a layout designed to make it easy to follow and not lose your place.
Text only printable pages so you can print the pattern on just 1 or 2 pages reducing paper usage.
Landscape layout that looks good on a laptop, tablet or phone (simply zoom in on half the page on your smart phone to see the pattern clearly in portrait mode).
Links to 5 tutorials and full written instructions for all the clusters to help with the special stitches.
As a secondary school English and language teacher I have extensive experience in writing learning resources that make information more easily accessible for all. So I encourage confident/intermediate crocheters to give this a try. I am also happy to help if anyone is in need of any assistance with this pattern.

I have never crocheted a heart in a granny square and thought this pattern would be cute to add to my collection for afghans.
Hello, I haven't made it yet , but I love the pattern.
Beautiful pattern, quite challenging for a left handed crocheter!
Can't wait to make it!
