This Anatomical Heart Balaclava Ski Mask Looks Just Like a Real Heart

When it comes to knitting and crocheting, there are simple projects you can do like making turtle sweaters, and cat couches, but if you're looking for something a little more complicated, this anatomical heart ski mask might be the project for you! It was made and designed by the Twitter user kaztrophysic, and it's the perfect to celebrate recovery from heart surgery, or perhaps you're just a big fan of Shin from Dorohedoro.

Immense planning went into designing the heart shaped ski mask to make it anatomically correct to a real human heart. Kaztrophysic who goes by Kazclops on Instagram has said it took her around 2 months to make the heart balaclava.

Kazclops also stated that crocheting the aorta was the hardest part of the ski mask, going on to say that it had to be redone around 10 times to get it right.

Some users have requested some instructions or a pattern so they can create their own heart shaped ski mask, but she stated that it took her too long to make and she stopped writing the steps down. She states that when she has time she may go back and create a pattern.

Kazclops also has a shop where she sells some of her unique ski masks and other crochet creations. Though the anatomical heart balaclava ski mask is not on there at the moment. Lets hope she can get a process going to make these quicker so she can sell them to everyone who wants one!

Kazclops states that she was searching forever for the perfect colored red yard, and then finally found some hand-dyed merino wool from Donegal.

She struggled a bit to find the perfect balance between looking realistic enough like a real heart, and functional enough to actually wear!

Since the anatomical heart balaclava ski mask was more of a personal project rather than an item for her store, you probably shouldn't expect to purchase it anywhere for the time being.
