Off the Shuttle: tatted pillowcase edging

I think this edging gives the effect of a row of red and white flowers on a border of green.
The pattern is 2 connected rows of "Leaf Braid" from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns. She says it's the easiest pattern in the book and probably the most useful. It's all rings. The green is size 20 Flora thread in color 265 and the variegated red and white is size 20 Flora in 57. Both are from some old stash since Flora thread is not being made any more.
