2-in-1 Heart Pattern

While woorking of the TaR Jan2020 Snowflake motif, I notice the shape of a heart (or two) in it.
And here it is.





This is the counts for the first heart:
(Please ignore the thread tails. I numbered it starting at the wrong side but it does not alter the way this is tatted)
Refer to rhe photo for where the joins are.
Ring 1: 3-2-2-3-2-4-4
Chain 2: 3-3-4-3-3
Ring 3: 4-4+2-4-4
Chain 4: 2-2-4-8-3-2-3
Ring 5: 4-4+2+3-2-2-3
Do not reverse for chain 6
Chain 6: 3-2-2-3-3
Ring 7: 3+3-3-3
Ring 8: 3+3-2-2-2-2-3-3

Repeat from Ring7 in reverse to complete Heart 1.
Do not cut the thread at this point for Heart 2.


Reverse work to continue with Heart 2.
Chain 1: 3-3-3-3
Ring 2: 5+5
Chain 3: 3-3-3-3-3
Ring 4: 3-3+3-3
Chain 5: 3-3-3-3
Ring 6: 3-3+5
Ring 7: 5+3-3

Work in reverse from Chain5 to complete the other side. 
Tie to base of Ring1 to finish Heart 2.
