Pattern: my own
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft--2.5 six oz. skeins
Hook: US G (4.25mm)

Close-up of individual hearts:



Close-up (folded in half):



Draped over a kitchen chair to show size:




There are 5 hearts on either short side with the "pointy" ends toward the edge. The middle section is simple mesh. It's about 30" wide and (approximately) 45 inches long. This was a lot of fun and only took me a few days. It's for my neice who's due any day now.

Thanks for looking!!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
