I'm looking for a heart pattern to make an afghan. it can be knit or crochet it doesn't really matter. I thought i had seen an FO here of a blanket with different colored hearts and i cant seem to find it anywhere! anyone know what i'm talking about? or any patterns? my brothers future SIL (she's 6) seen me working on an afghan and was like wow you can make blankets all by yourself. so when i told her that i can, she said ok make me a heart blanket. I have found a couple of crochet pattersn but nothing that i really liked. so i figured i might try knitting one. thanks!

I didn't find a heart afghan which is odd 'cause I thought there was one out there...:think:
but I did find some dishcloths with heart...you could use for a heart afghan...
One with color (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/intarsia-heart-dishcloth)(or you could just purl the heart and make it all one color)
Heart Illusions (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/heart-illusion-dishcloth)
There is a child's heart and star afghan in this book (http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/0873498526/102-3062660-3368128?SubscriptionId=1YZR91QYB6WCG3PM78G2)

Do you belong to Rav? A handful of ideas there with the 'heart' tag.
Below are a few.

One more from Rav. The pink (sorry about the bad pic) is from a Leinhauser book (found at library) of 100 Afghans.

BTW, the Rav projects posted above may not mention specific patt. Just posting images to give ideas of what others have done.

you might find some ideas here
and as said, cushions/pillows or dishcloths would make good afghan blocks.

The Baby Blanket kal has several heart blankets. That is where you saw the multi-colored hearts -- a beautiful blanket. I did one in solid pink, pictured on that kal. It was fun and easy to do. Good luck!
