The Happy Hearts Crochet Afghan is a patchwork of rosy shades and crochet hearts, making it a  perfect project for your special sweetheart this Valentine's Day. This crochet blanket is made of individual granny squares joined together at the end. Arrange granny squares with crochet squares and with crochet hearts in them to form this bright and multicolored blanket design. This is a great project to work on while you're traveling for the holidays since you can work on smaller individual designs to join together later.
