Beaded Heavenly Heart.designed by Mary Joseph Donohue aka Icela © 02/04/05. Mary writes that this was an inspired design for one of her coworker’s husband stationed in Iraq. Great work! And thanks for sharing with the online tatting class.

Clover Leaf R = 5 – 8 – 8 – 5, CL
R = 5 + (join to last picot of previous ring) 10 – 10 – 5, CL
R = 5 – 8 – 8 – 5, CL, Shoelace Trick (SLT)
CH = 16 ds, reverse work (rw)
Using the auxillary thread form a ring 6ds, CL, rw
CH = 8 ds,
Make 3 Josephine Knot JK with 16 2nd halves of the ds only using the auxillary thread,
CH = 8 ds,
R = 6ds cl
Ch = 8ds, rw
R = 3 ds, + (join to middle picot of last ring) 3ds, CL, rw
CH = 8ds rw
R = 3ds, + (join to the center picot of the middle clover leaf) 3 ds CL, rw
CH = 8ds
R = 6ds CL
CH = 8ds, rw
R = 3ds + to center picot of middle clover leaf, 3ds, CL, rw
CH = 8ds
R = 6 ds CL
CH = 8ds, rw
R = 3ds + (join to middle picot of 1st clover leaf) 3ds CL, rw
CH = 8ds
R = 6ds, CL
CH = 8 ds
Make 3 JK of 16 2nd halves of the ds, SLT
CH = 8 ds, rw
R = 6 ds, CL, rw
CH = 16 ds + (join at the base of the 1st chain of 16 ds.)
