Simple Heart Bookmark

Inspired by Michelle's post,  I decided it was time I tatted  Vicki Clarke's Simple Heart which I had printed aaaaages ago but never got around to tatting.

I hope Michelle will forgive me but I shamelessly copied the little quatrefoil she had put on her tails as I thought it looked so nice... but they do say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", don't they?

I thought Vicki's Simple Heart would be a good pattern to showcase the thread which is called "Early Rising" by Karey Solomon.





Best wishes,

    1. Isn't it just? Such subtle and interesting colour changes. I think Karey's threads are really special.

  8. I've been admiring it too! - isn't it gorgeous? - and could I shamelessly as for the directions for the quatrefoils? - is it a split ring thing?

  9. Of course you can Maureen! Yes, a split ring thing.

    Really simple: SR3-3/3-3, dnrw, R3+6-3, rw, R3+6-3, SR3+3/3+3

    I don't know if that's how Michelle did hers, but that's how I did mine.
