hi Jan, no it is not the precious in pink pattern. It is actually called Sweetheart Baby Afghan and it's published by the same company (leisure arts) in a booklet called Our Best Knit Baby Afghans and it's on the front page. i can't post the link yet (not enough posts) so hopefully you can findd it.
Since it involves the increases, i'll try the pattern of one heart again going by their instructions to increase front and back on next st. It is quite possible that is why the heart tips are going wonky. I used a cast on to increase. I will try on separate work and see if that clears up the problem. I'll let you know how i fair out and thank you so much for your help.
