Tin Man's Heart

This is the heart for the Tin Man in The Wiz - the school's spring musical.  I knit it using my Little Hearts pattern and just kept going with the body increases until it was bigger than I wanted it to be after I felted it. After the bottom part was about 1/3 bigger than I wanted it, I split the stitches and knit the two tops - again, just like the pattern but kept decreasing until I got down to either 5 or 7 stitches (can't remember which).  Then we felted it.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the felted heart.  It felted really nicely and the colors of the Noro blended together so nicely when it felted.
