Hearts, Split ring by Georgia Seitz



Tatted Hearts


Hearts are easy to tat and wonderful to share on Valentine's Day and all year round. Tatted hearts can be small enough to attach as a paper clip decoration or large enough to send in the mail. They can be be tatted from fine delicate thread for use as holiday decorations or from larger thread to dress up old blue jeans.


lace heart


Here is a heart pattern to practice both the split ring, multiple joins into one picot and picots all the same size. It is the logo from my personal teaching website, www.georgiaseitz.com, and was designed as part of the motif central for my book of tatting patterns, "Tatting on the Edge...and Beyond." This book was the fourth in the Ribbonwinners Series.

This heart was developed as a teaching pattern especially to teach the split ring. The tatted split ring as a construction tool is a necessary step for tatting designers. Our basic forms are the ring, a circle which begins at point A and ends at point A, and the chain, a curve or arch which begins at point A but ends at point B, thus moving the lace forward along the line of progression. However, it is also possible to modify a normal tatted ring so that it acts as a chain.

This modified ring is called a split ring. The split ring is normally made in two halves (hence, "split") which may be symmetrical or asymmetrical. On most patterns, the split ring is drawn with a line through it indicating the split or with other crosshatching marks. Identifying the split ring separately allows the tatter's eye to follow the line of progression easily, too.

Pattern: Using two shuttles begin tatting from the small ring which forms the bottom point of the heart and tat split rings up the left side, ring and chain at the top, cloverleaf for the center, repeat ring and chain and complete right side with split rings.


R 3 - 3 close ring. Do not reverse work.

Split ring: 5 - 5 / 5 - 5 close ring with shuttle one. Repeat three more times.


Reverse work. Use shuttle two for the inner rings (Note: to create the all right side up look for this motif, tat these four regular rings in reverse half stitch order.) Use shuttle one for the chains.



R 10 - 10 close ring. This single picot should be large enough for three joins. RW

Split ring: 5 - 5 / 5 - 5 close ring with shuttle one. Repeat to create four split rings joining last split ring to the first split ring on the opposite side.
