Enchanter

My Valentine gift to you this year 


I know there are still a few days more, but if you are still searching for hearts to tat, you may want to try this.
The chart is below
 
Load two shuttles CTM.
Begin with the dimpled ring (DR) in the centre of the heart with the stitch count of
DR(7-7-7sp7+[to the sp]7-7-7)
Then, make a split ring SR(2-2-2-2/2-2-2-2).
Rotate work so that the dimpled ring is now pointing downwards.
R(6-6)
Switch Shuttle (SS), C(12) and reverse work (rw).
R(4-4+[to the first picot of the DR]4-4), rw.
C(10), rw.
R(4-4+[to the 2nd picot of the DR]8), rw.
C(2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2), rw.
R(8+[to the picot of the DR joined earlier]4-4), rw.
C(8), rw.
R(4+[to the sp join of the DR]4), rw.
C(8), rw.
R(4-4+[to the 4th picot of the DR]8), rw.
C(2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2), rw.
R(8+[to the picot of the DR joined earlier]4-4), rw.
C(10), rw.
R(4-4+[to the last picot of the DR]4-4), rw.
C(12)
Leave a tail of about four inches of thread from each shuttle before cutting.  Tie the ends to the space between the split ring and the floating ring.
Tie the ends into a bow. Isn't that great - no ends to hide.

This is the link to the pdf file of the pattern.

  3. Can't get the PDF. It says something about asking permission from you to share it. :-(

  4. You're so generous with your patterns, and you do a wonderful job with the diagrams and instructions. I'm anxious to give this a try!
    Very clever use of the dimpled ring, and a neat way to tie ends as a bow. The thread color worked out perfectly, which always amazes me!

  5. Thank you Diane, Sally. This heart tats up very quick.

    Kathy, I like the way the shades worked out too, and I did not planned for it when I started. Just used up some thread that is already in the shuttle.

    Needledreams, sorry about that. It appears that the setting was still on 'Private' when I posted the link. Changed it to 'Public' and the link is working now.
