  1. Thanks for linking this! I had fun making it & it turned out much better than I could have expected! A group of us is doing a charity run tomorrow …with a llama…in aid of the organ donor alliance, hence we’ve all been knitting organs 🙂

    • I’ve been looking for the pattern for Anna Isherwood’s respiratory system but can’t seem to find a link. Can yu put me in the right directin? I want to knit a set as a thank you to the surgeon who has just removed half of one of my lungs!
      Thanks, Amanda

      • Hi Amanda, I just made it up & didn’t write up a pattern. You’re welcome to email me at & I can try to remember what I did if that helps?
        Kind regards, & best wishes for a speedy recovery, Anna.
