heart afghan

I was watching old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy while working on this afghan, and the episode with the heart in a box came on…..This is a cute couch throw to make up for Valentines Day, and it will look great year round.  Great to cuddle up with while binge-watching tv.

I wanted to make a smaller throw to go along the back of the couch, so this blanket came out to 38 1/2″ across and 45″ long, but it is easy to scale up if you want a bigger blanket.

If you would like a printable PDF of this pattern, you can find on here in my Etsy store.
