I crocheted this using Lion Brand Pound of Love using a size J afghan hook with the afghan and popcorn stitches. I entered this pattern onto an electronic spreadsheet with just the hearts for a template pattern. Then I create a separate spreadsheet to enter the names. Since the popcorn stitch is on the back side, the pattern must be crocheted from RIGHT to LEFT. If you wish to read the pattern from left to right, enter the names backwards on the pattern. This can also be crocheted without the names, and the names can be cross stitched on after it is crocheted.
