HERE. The hearts are worked up first, linked and sewn together, then the blanket is worked in toward the center before finishing the outer side of the hearts.
And my most recent baby blanket is this - I just couldn't resist the super squishy soft yarn (Deborah Norville "Serenity") on half price! And the chunky weight and V stitch works up so quickly - less than a week for me, and I really don't work very quickly.
Close to a pattern found on Lionbrand.com, but you'll need to be a member to find the "Sea Blue Baby Afghan". I used four full skeins (109 yds) of Baby Yellow and about a half skein of Alaskan Blue (two stripes), to make it about 33 x 26.
