From the pattern description:

A sister afghan to Queen of Hearts, this same theme has been reworked, this time in denim yarn. I have returned to a favourite motif, the heart, with its connotations of warmth, affection and the home. It is immediately recognisable and capable of many adaptions. In this design I have used this concept to establish a feeling of ease and well-being.
