The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). The second picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

The original patterns were in black and white, so I have chosen the colour. The original had some of the squares inside the heart as a different type of stitch, with the 4 stitches are drawn as a diagonal cross. It seemed easier to make these the same colour as the rest as they didin't seem to add to the effect of the pattern. Feel free to chose colours you want or colour it a different way.
