intarsia knitting or fair isle knitting:

The square pattern include the outlines of a heart.

You can either use the Intarsia or Fair Isle method.

*Ensure that the yarn overlaps when you are changing        colors to avoid any holes in your knitting project.

The basic pattern is the same as the knitting pattern for the Easy Knit Square Pattern, but the number of stitches have been adjusted for future square designs.
