Battatter's Heartline Edging

This is the sweet little edging that Battatter shared. It tats up real quick. (My DMC thread, of course.) I think it would be perfect for Valentine cards. Another thought, it would be sweet around votive cups for Valentines or to decorate a room with a heart theme. So many ideas. If only I could imagine my way into designing my own tatting!

Thanks again for sharing.

I'll bet it would be cute as a sock edging! ; )

You are right! It would make a cute sock edging. The stitch counts would have to changed somewhat, as it tends to curve, (at least mine does.) Oh, I just had a "vision." Size 80 thread in pink and white for baby girl socks!

It tends to curve? Maybe it could be coaxed to curve into a circle by using a few less ds in the white chains. Then it could be a circular ornament or suncatcher!

...Or a chain for a necklace if it curved enough. Oooo, I know since it curves it would look really cute at the neckline of a t-shirt or baby onsie!

I am sure the ds's could be adjusted to make it curve less. I love the Valentines Card idea.

Thanks Everybody!
Yarnplayer, I think it could be coaxed to curve into a circle very easily. Good idea.
It would be very cute around a neckline, but it would need to curve the other way. I don't think that would be too hard to figure out. It is a great pattern. I love onsie idea.
I am working on adjusting the doubles, as I want it to be straight right now. The card idea is good because it is so fast to make!
