This is a lovely blanket with a decidedly modern look. One big advantage to the Corner to Corner projects is that they lend themselves to graphic designs almost better than straight crocheted rows. The small size makes it perfect for a baby blanket, and consequently, wont take too long to work up. Since its a Red Heart pattern, the original can be downloaded from here http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/heart-throb-b == lanket

This is so cute and would make the perfect baby shower gift or a welcoming gift for that new baby girl. I love the colors and the heart within a heart within the word LOVE. So I guess that I LOVE this blanket. I love pink too so this could be my next blanket for myself.

Awww. This is so cute. This is a C2C blanket. I have never actually made a blanket using the C2C technique. I need a baby blanket for a baby shower in the next few months and I have been looking for something that will give me a challenge. I read over the directions and they appear to be fairly easy to understand so I may give it a try.

This is absolutely adorable!! I can't wait to get the yarn and get it started. I might change the light pink to a gray so it's not quite so girly? I would really like a blue option. Does anyone have any ideas for a blue option? Thanks for the help.

This is such a unique baby blanket! It would look adorable in any nursery.
