This makes a sweet little heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! The example is tatted in Altin Basak size 50.

Clover: R 8-8, R 8-8, R 8-8
ch 4-4-4-4, R 8j8 (to last ring of clover), ch 4-4-4-4. R 8j8 (same picot)

ch 4-4-4-4; clover: R 8j8 (to previous group), R 8j8 (to middle ring of first clover), R 8-8
ch 4j4-4-4 R 8j8 (to last ring of previous clover), ch 4-4

SLT or switch to second shuttle, R 6-6 (tip of heart), SLT or switch back to first shuttle.

ch 4-4, R 8j8, ch 4-4-4-4
Clover: R 8j8 (to previous group), R 8j8 (to middle ring of first clover), R 8-8
ch 4j4-4-4 R 8j8 (to last ring of previous clover),ch 4-4-4-4

This is a minor variation tatted in hand-dyed silk thread (linked on the main page) in Tugtupite. For this heart, the chains in the tip were shortened to 4 ds instead of the 4-4, and the chains at the top have 6 ds in the space closest to the clovers.



Many thanks to Melissa Anaya , who has rewritten the pattern for needle tatters:

Ch 4-4-4-4 RW
R 8+ (to last ring of clover) 8 RW
Ch 4-4-4-4 RW
R 8 + (same picot) 8 RW
Ch 4-4-4-4 RW
Clover: R 8 + (to previous group) 8, R 8 + (to middle ring of first clover) 8, R 8-8 RW
Ch 4 + (to last picot of previous chain) 4-4-4 RW
R 8 + (to last ring of previous clover) 8 RW
