There's a photo on Ravelry of that take on the same basic stitch pattern ( it’s in Vogue Knitting, from the late 80’s.) The differences are small. I used a larger needle and didn’t stop in the middle of the top heart repeat. Other than that I was very surprised to see how closely two people can think alike. Thank you for pointing it out :)
