Colorado Strong - Heart Granny Square Crochet pattern

Colorado Strong - Heart Granny Square 
Crochet Pattern By 
Sara Sach of
 Posh Pooch Designs
I have a lot of fun patterns 
and projects planned for this month.

Not only is it Colorado's Birth month, 
but also my daughter's, 
So check back often for lots of fun! 


 I worked on this Granny Square for 3 days 
trying to get the shaping on the heart right.
I was going for a 3D effect.
I do really like the the finished results, 
and think it would work for any colors.
It is a Simple Granny Square, and once you
 get the heart down down, the rest is a piece of cake.
I took a gazillion pictures trying to get the red rounds clear, 
but photographing red is quite tricky.
I think I got it pretty clear.
