My tatting teacher had this pattern out expecting more advanced students in the class, but needless to say it caught my eye. The pattern is beautifully Victorian, and I told her I thought I would be able to handle the challenge, so she gave me the pattern and talked me through it a bit. I went home and tried it and sure enough it turned out just fine! It didn't take me very long, either. I used Lizbeth in size 20. I did another one in red, and gave them to my brother, who works with real hearts!
