Circle of Hearts Checkerboard Baby Afghan
"I had a girlfriend who had her baby way too early, he weighed 1 lb & 3 oz when born. I felt he needed all the love (the hearts) & circles (friends & family) he could get. The hearts might need tweaking a bit but it's a good pattern. Mine measured 40 x 40 when done. Keep in mind that I crochet large & loosely. I just used scraps of yarn in all shades, some bright & some dull. I think I used 2 skeins of I Love This Yarn's white."
