The pattern is real easy, single crochet work in rows. It needs a bit of attention at the colour changes, at the beginning at least , because after a couple of  rows you get used to it. The heart consists of two pieces, one for the front and one for the back, that we join them together at the end. The written instructions are for a single colour heart. The plaid pattern is  show at the chart.
