It's like cross-stitch and crochet combined. Tiny little colored squares to create a picture. I've come across some beautiful blankets made this way and have wanted to try creating one of my own. You can just about take any small cross-stitch pattern and turn it into pixel crochet, so I decided to start with a simple heart.
The easy part is finished. Tiny little one round granny squares were created using thin cotton yarn. Now I have to join them all together and tie in all those little loose ends. My least favorite part of crochet. Perhaps it will be a pillow at some point. Not sure I'll ever have the patience for a blanket.
My heart is full today.
My college boy arrived early this morning for a visit.
