Power-up with this retro 8-bit heart blanket. It’s made with a load of ‘closed’ granny squares stitched together – one for each ‘pixel’.

It’s well worth taking the extra time to weave in the ends on each square as you go. That way you don’t have to tackle them at the end!

There are a fair few squares to make, but the pattern is quick to learn and only a few rounds long. Slip-stitch the finished squares together and you’ll have one super-cool bonus treat!
