Crochet is the perfect medium for creating cozy afghans. If you'd like to create a patchwork-style afghan made from crocheted squares, this heart design is a great choice. I've designed this block to coordinate with multiple other afghan squares, so you have plenty of options for mixing and matching this square with others that are similar.

This afghan square is crocheted in single crochet stitch using the tapestry crochet technique. Then the heart design is cross-stitched on top, and the finishing touches are added in surface crochet.
