A fellow crocheter had recently posted a picture of a blanket made from this bobble heart square, and so I wanted to attempt the square to see if it was easy to do. There is a family wedding in the near future and I thought about making a blanket for the couple, but wanted to give this square a try before I jumped in.
The pattern is free on Ravelry. Instead of a written out pattern, it is a graph pattern. Although I have not done a lot of graph patterns, this one is easy to follow and the designer did a good job explaining the stitches. The finished square for me ended up being just about 8.5 x 8.5" using an I (5.5 mm) hook and worsted weight (10 ply) yarn.
The picture above is not blocked, but the square does work up relatively quickly. If you are not familiar with following graphs, I think this is a pretty good one to start with.
I am still not certain what I will make with the finished square, but I will definitely be making more of these.
