Tatted Edging for a Sweater

Motif #15 of the 25 Motif Challenge

I've been wanting to add more tatting to my clothing and thought the edge of the sleeves of this sweater would be perfect! So I tried the tatted edging that Marie Smith sent me. She calls it "My Favorite Edging" and she so graciously typed up a pattern for me to follow! She did a wonderful job since as you can see I tatted up 12 repeats for this edging and I'm working on the second cuff now. I also made myself a diagram to make it easier to follow but by now I have the pattern memorized! LOL I used the same thread I used for the last shirt edging I made. It's size 70 ecru DMC Cordonnet Special.
