Here's my knit anatomical heart, from a pattern in Knit.1.  It has been modified to be more anatomically correct than the original pattern.  I hope you guys like it!  It was fun to make, but the finishing instructions in the magazine were very confusing.

That is so cool!  I would have learned a lot more if they made us create knit objects in biology.  Like, ok here is the model of a cell, you have 4 weeks to knit an anatomically correct version.  That would pretty much guarentee that I actually learned and could name every part!

it's from the Valentines issue.  About a week before that issue came out, I had a friend ask me to knit her an anatomical heart, so I HAD to buy that magazine!  I haven't tried it, yet.  I, too, would love to know the changes.

Hi guys and thanks for all the comments!

I basically just changed the blood vessels to be more anatomically correct.  I would suggest Googling anatomical heart pictures to see how the aorta and its branches, as well as the the other vessels, should be.  That being said, it's still not as anatomical as I would have liked.

Also, while the pattern calls for the atria to be spheres, you could really just do with two hemi-spheres.  I ended up squooshing my atria down to get them to look normal.

Also, the pattern says to make 2 right atria and one left atrium, which would make the weirdest heart I've ever seen!

I teach science and we cover the heart and circulatory system.  This would be sooooo cool to have.  Perhaps I can learn to knit that well.  What do you need (skill wise?) to be able to do to make one of these?

Wow!  That's a very cool project.  I'm a microbiologist and it reminds me of some stuffed "animals" I've come across before of parasites and bacteria.  Fun stuff!!

Rockin.

Yeah, your artia turned out a lot better than mine.  I should have 'smooshed' as you did.

Any tips on the "smooshing"?  I'm a new knitter and love the ways yours turned out!  I'm a little disappointed about how "unheart"like the one in the magazine is after finally hunting one down!

All I did was smoosh and then whipstitching into place as tightly as possible.  When you actually make the atria, there will be a point where they will look like hemispheres -- I imagine you could just stop there if you wanted to.

Could I possibly get the pattern for this? I've looked everywhere for this pattern, but turned up with no such luck. (I'm too lazy to design my own Tongue)

Thanks
