border

With the right side of the blanket facing attach Colour B into the top right hand corner. 

When working the 3 stitches for the corner you may want to mark the middle st with a stitch marker. 

  • Rnd 1: Ch 1 (not counted as a stitch), 3 dc in corner st. dc in every st along the top, 3 dc in last st to make the corner, working along the side of the blanket place 2 dc in each row end around the last st. Continue this around the blanket, making sure to place 3 dc in the corner. Join with a slst to the first st. 
  • Rnd 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a st) tr in the same st as the ch 1, 3 tr in the middle of the 3 dc’s making the corner. tr in every st around the blanket, making sure to place 3 tr in the middle of the 3 dc. Join with a slst to the top of the first st. 
  • Rnd 3: Rep Rnd 2 but join to the first tr with the invisible join.

sizing alterations

  • You may wish to alter the size of your blanket to make it bigger or smaller. 
  • On the chart you will notice colour lines running through the chart. These are pattern repeats. 
  • If you wish to make it longer work the chart through once, then add as many pattern repeats between the blue lines as you wish (Rows 2 – 22) but on the final repeat stop at the red line (Row 18). 
  • In order to make your blanket wider add the pattern repeat between the green lines (32 extra ch sts). Working the repeat between the first green line (st 14) to the second green line (st 46) until you have reached your desired width ensuring after your last repeat that you work to the end of the chart.

“I have always loved filet crochet. I like how simple it is. You can come up with the simplest or very intricate of designs depending on where you place your stitches. The filet technique is just Double crochet (US terms) and chain stitches placed in specific places to create open blocks that create a picture or pattern. If you can make a chain stitch and a double crochet stitch then you can crochet a filet blanket. The Linked Hearts Blanket is a beginner friendly pattern and has written row by row instructions as well as a chart to work from.”

    The counts in this pattern are not adding up. Am I doing something wrong? It says 89 tr for row 1 then row 2 only has 88 stitches.. Row 7 has over 100 stitches. I love this blanket but the pattern is confusing. Is the ch 2 counted as a stitch or not as a stitch, it seems like it is on some rows while it’s not other rows.

      Hi Mary I have contacted Emma on your behalf and here is her reply:-

      I’ve had a look at the pattern on the website and I’m not sure where the problems they are experiencing are.

      I’ve double checked the stitch counts and they are all 89 like they should be.

      The ch2 counts as a stitch throughout the blanket. Row 20 starts with a ch3 as this is counted as one stitch and a ch1.

      The only thing I can think where they are increasing the stitch count is counting the ch1, sk1 as 2 stitches when it is just 1 stitch.

      If they need anymore help then I’m happy to help further.

      Hope this helps 🙂

      Hi Mary

      I have had the same issue as you. If you read the pattern at face value, then the sums do not add up. Did you manage to work it out? This is a beautiful blanket, but I’m not experienced enough to work this out. I’m thinking if you haven’t been able to work it out, then in view of the other post as well, I might find a different pattern

    I have been busy busy the last few days and thought crocheting would help me relax. LOL Do not try patterns when you are exhausted I guess. I looked at it again a few minutes ago and I can’t figure out what I was counting either. Sorry about the confusion. Is there a way to print this pattern? Would probably help me out to have it off the screen. lol

    For row 12, if the ch2 counts as the first TR then shouldn’t it be a ch3 since it’s creating a space?

    Hi. Row 8 of this pattern has a typo. It says “[tr 7, ch 1, sk 1, tr, ch 1, sk 1, tr 19, ch 1, sk 1, tr, ch 1, sk1]”. The 3rd and 5th tr have no number. The amount of stitches listed in this row is short by 4, as this is a repeat twice section I am assuming it should say tr1 in both missing places. Well I hope so because that’s what I’m doing!

    I am confused on the repeats. It looks like it starts with an upper heart, half way through. Does that work out? Did you just do it on the end? In my mind, starting the heart on the right half at the end of the pattern row doesn’t add up?

    Hello there, after making a lot of this I realized something…. Your definition of treble/triple crochet is wrong. For a treble/triple crochet you yarn over twice before you insert the hook in the stitch to start it. You have that you yarn over once and then insert into stitch… Which would make it a double crochet. Then the double crochet is actually a single crochet. I’m pretty new to the crochet world but I’m fairly certain that these terms are described incorrectly. In the project though, from your pictures it does look like they are double crochet all the way through so at least I don’t have to go back on the pattern (if I even would have because I got through the colors one time each so far, haha). It was confusing to notice anyways. Love the pattern though 🙂

    All of the counts on this pattern are off, not by much, but if it’s off at all, it throws the whole thing off. I have been using the pic at the top to figure out the counts, so I’ll post them when I’m done and have the finished product to make certain my counts are correct.
    First off, if you chain 90 and then start back on the row in the third chain from the hook, that can’t leave you with 89 stitches. 90 – 3 is 87, which is the correct count. If you do the rest based on having 87 stitches, things will come out correct.
    On row 2, it has you work 27 stitches in, and then 28 on the other side. Those should always match, otherwise the hearts will be off center and look weird. So you should have 27 stitches on either side of where you started the hearts. I’m up to row 8 so far and all my counts are adding up to 87 across and the pattern is looking like the pictures above. Anyway, I’ll comment again when I’m done if anyone else needs this corrected. This is a beautiful pattern, but if the math and counts are all wonky, it’s not going to turn out right and just frustrate most of the people trying to make this.

        I was able to figure it out! If everyone will just know that the original row count is 87, not 89, they should be ok. I found an online graph paper, made it 90 rows by 18 rows and then took the up close picture of just the pink section and counted stitches and laid it out on the graph paper. It came out perfectly.

      Hi,

      The pattern has been fully tested and I can assure you that the stitch counts are correct.

      When you chain 90 and work into the 3rd chain it will give you a count of 89 as the 2 skipped chains at the beginning are counted as a stitch too and need working into at the end of row 2.

      The reason why you start row 2 with 27 and finish with 28 is the CH2 at the beginning of the row counts as the 1st stitch which will give you 28 in total. You then need to make sure you are working into the top of the chain for your last stitch of the row.

    I made this blanket for a friends sisters baby and it was very well received. The pattern was easy (ish) to follow. I found that at some points in the middle of the pattern I had to really concentrate and tick off the stitches as I went so I didn’t get lost, but it all worked out great and it looks amazing. I am going to make a second one soon for a family baby.

    Thanks for sharing this pattern, the blanket is too sweet! I did two back to back in coordinating colors for twin girls and they turned out great. The first one went perfectly, the second one I tried to rush through and did a fair share of frogging.My best advice for those having problems is PAY ATTENTION! Pay attention to stitch placement, be sure you are doing the repeats correctly, STAY AWARE that in UK terms ‘tr’ is the same as ‘dc’ in US terms. When it says ‘tr’ without a number, that means do only one! And yes, the chain 2 at the beginning of each row counts as the first stitch (I did ch 3 for my projects). I hope this helps, it really is a precious blanket

      Hi Marion, If I understand your post correctly, where I see just ‘tr’ and no number, this is not a mistake in the written pattern? I’ve had to refer to the chart, (unfortunately for me, I have difficulty reading these charts when trying to teach myself how to work with them) In Row 8, then again in Row’s 12, 13, 14, and 15 so far, I see this happening, a tr and no number following it. If not going by the chart and using the wording for rows, there is no indication of just how many stitches are to be done. These are all just ONE stitch then? I’ve also already goofed and did the US stitches of a treble where it listed tr and not a double. I’ve trying to just follow through since I really do not want to rip out all of these rows and begin again, as I’ve done this multiple times already trying to fix the counts. Thanks, Bonnie

    I want to make this basically double the size but I can’t figure out how to set the repeat at stitch 14-46 when several of the rows have more than that-if I just double it the hook of the heart doesn’t cross. Is there a way to get this pattern doubled more specifically? The math is just killing me right now.

    Not sure why people are struggling but like any filet crochet you must pay attention. While I have had to pull out some stitches, it was certainly my error not the pattern creators error! Wonderful pattern. Instead of playing around with additions to make it wider I just added 16 stitches or each side. The first color section is beautiful and it works up fast. Looking forward to the end result.
    Thank you!!!

    I’m just about to finish this blanket and it’s been quite the adventure. I didn’t realize the chain 2 counts as a stitch and it was throwing me way off. I spent 4 days rereading the pattern, printing out graph paper to make my own chart, reading through everyone’s comments, and a lot of frogging. Eventually everything clicked and it was smooth sailing and all my rows add up to 89.

    I’m about to start the border and that’s when I noticed a mistake in this pattern. The written pattern and the graph work out the same but they are different than the blanket in the pictures. The picture of the pink section that’s right before the border instructions was not made using this exact pattern. I counted the stitches in the picture and they only add up to 87. In the written pattern and graph there has been an extra stitch added on both sides so it adds up to 89.

    Maybe this is where people are getting confused. I also think that it would be worth mentioning in the pattern that the chain 2 counts as a stitch and needs working into at the end of the rows. I wasn’t counting it so I would work my first double crochet into that first stitch instead of skipping it and it was throwing my stitch count way off. I didn’t realize about the chain 2 until I read Emma’s response and it would’ve saved me a lot of frustration had it been mentioned. I love the blanket though, very cute!

    *I posted this comment twice because it somehow was made as a reply instead of its own comment.

    There are 89 stitches in each row of your written pattern but only 87 stitches in your pictures of the blanket. It should be noted in the pattern that the chain 2 counts as a stitch and needs working into at the end of each row. Beautiful blanket and the pattern works great but you really have to pay close attention.

    I purchase #3 yarn to do this blanket. When I work the gauge, it turns out way too small. The pattern doesn’t say what size yarn to use. Could it need to be a #4 yarn instead of #2?

    This is the most confusion pattern I’ve encountered. I’ve tried it 4 times and I’ve finally given up. The pattern is not written correctly and it is too back because the blanket is beautiful. I would be nice if there was a video or just better instructions. It looks like I’m not the only one having the issues.

    I think that the issue with this pattern is that it doesn’t take into account that when you chain 2 and turn the row changes direction. I’ve tried the pattern multiple times and I’ve found that if you complete the odd rows backwards then everything should work out.
