Hearts to you!!!

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all having a great Valentines Day!!!

These pictures are from Feb. 6th when I had some friends over for some tatting and chatting!! In the first pictures there is Pat and myself (can you tell I had a killer head ache?) Then there is Karen and lastly Sandra!! We had a blast; head ache or not!!!

I am taking part in a tatting exchange with the Fringe called `my favorite snowflake`. I have many favorite patterns for snowflakes, but I thought that seeing this exchange was going on in February my snowflake should be made up hearts!!!

Here is the pattern I used for the heart!! I am not a designer and do not claim that someone has not done this kind of heart before me!!

Flower Heart

Abbrivations: R = ring Ch = chain cl = close
rw = reverse work DNRW = do not reverse work

R - (ds,p) ds 7x`s total of 7 picots cl, rw.
Ch - 20 ds cl, join to 5th picot from large ring.
Ch - 5 ds cl DNRW
R - (ds,p) ds 3x`s cl DNRW
Ch - 5ds cl, join to the 3rd picot from larger ring. DNRW
Ch - 20 ds cl. join to the top of the first ring. Tie and hide ends.

This is fast little heart and I hope I did alright writing it out. Please enjoy!!

Take care!!
Tatfully Yours


  1. Love the snowflake of hearts! It must be great fun to tat with a friend!!

  2. That is so awesome looking! I love it!!! :)

  3. Lovely heart piece. I can see that you all had lots of fun. Did it clear your headache too?

  4. What a great pattern! Thanks for sharing. Will certainly give it a try.

  5. That is a very pretty snowflake. Good job.

  6. Hi, the motif is so cute - i definitely want to try this.

    Just to make sure I understand your pattern correctly:

    Ring 1 is: 7 picots separated by 1 ds (for a total of 7 ds)

    and Ring 2 is: 3 picots separated by 1 ds (for a total of 3 ds)

    Is this correct?


  7. Hi Lily

    I think you got it the idea but I started with a ds so that would make 8 ds on the larger ring and 4 on the small ring! I think!! Give it a try and let me know!!


  8. I love it. I want to make one. You are a designer.

  9. Wonderful little heart snowflake, Kelly! Glad you had a fine day!
    Fox : )

  10. Thanks Kelly - got it!

    I've already tatted up a few in different methods

    I would like to add the joining picots as you did on the chain 20... I may just experiment putting a picot at different points to join several hearts together... Do you remember if you put those picots at mid-point of the long chains?

  11. Clever idea..thanks for sharing.

  12. its soo cute your heart, saw it on dianes blog, will give it a try soon, thank you !

  13. The circle of hearts is gorgeous..! Great idea..looks good.
