Heart hat

Don’t tell me, I know. . . I’m twick and sisted. This is actually for a Discworld knitters’ group thingie, but I thought you guys’d get a kick out of it. Of course Herself wouldn’t actually let me put it on her. Don’t be silly. Top one has no Igor stitches. . .

. . . bottom one does. If you don’t know what Igor stitches are, you need to add the Discworld novels to your reading-material base. ๐Ÿ™‚

Technical bits: I knitted it in two pieces, curving left and then right to simulate the halves of the heart, and made large patches of increases at both edges of each piece to get the curvature. After sewing it together, I added the aortic arch and pulmonary artery bits (a good portion of which you canโ€™t see โ€˜cause they refused to cooperate) and the bits of the brachiocephalic trunk, the left common carotid and the left subclavian arteries (the little red sproings).

It wouldn’t pass in a science class, but hey, it’s a hat.
