Tutorial Tuesday Granny Square Heart
Everyone loves a granny square pattern so you're going to love this cute granny heart pattern. Quick and simple to make and a fab stash buster project. I made these particular hearts for a workshop I am hosting with Nottingham WI on Valentines day so have them as samples at the moment but as soon as I have blasted through my to do list (...which is epic as always) I will be turning them into a garland for my girls room.
This pattern is worked in rounds using only one colour but can easily be adapted for a multi coloured design. Simply change colour on each round or on the last round only for a fun alternative. I personally love the block colour ones the best.
