Martha's Heart?

I bought a copy of Martha Ess' new book of hearts, "Tat's Amore" and decided to do this heart. I was spending lots of time with my BIL at the hosp. so decided to tat it there. But I forgot the book. I thought I could remember the pattern but missed row 2 in white entirely and increased the # of picots & stitches along the outside edge. I decided it was pretty anyway and am really looking forward to trying some of Martha's other hearts. Hopefully I'll have a book with me and not make any mistakes
