Science Related Knitting Patterns

Updated on December 30, 2013

Scientific Knitting Patterns

Scientists do more then spend their time in lab, but they sometimes bring their academic passions into their hobbies. My blog, ChemKnits, was founded on the merger of my career and my favorite hobby. Yes some of it is dorky, but I love what I do! Sharing science knitting patterns with the world has become an outlet that is applicable to non-scientists, too. Many people who haven't thought about chemistry since high school know someone who would really enjoy a knit science project.

This lens will highlight free science knitting patterns, including the patterns that I have designed myself. I will happily consider all suggestions for new science related knitting projects. Who knows, your idea might just become my next design!

Peptide Beer Cozy - Do you have a favorite protein?

This was the first molecule based knitting pattern that I actually knit, the peptide beer cozy.. You can use the same pentapeptide (chain of 5 amino acids) as me, or create your own taking advantage of the generic pentapeptide chart and the charts of all 20 natural amino acids.

This is a list of all of the free patterns of my design that I have featured in this lens.

RFR/RFB Christmas Stocking

Featuring a Heme inspired star!

I made this stocking for myself with a heme related chart that I designed from the request of a faithful reader. I loved what I had created for her so much that I incorporated it into my stocking design.

Make this coffee cozy for your favorite Caffeine Addict, because it features the molecule caffeine. Let them have a boost... from inside their cup and out!

How often do you stop and think what you're doing to your body when you're drinking? this thought inspired me to create the "Hangover" Beer Cozy. This cozy has a scheme of the ethanol metabolism pathway on one side (the inebriated side) and the structure of ibuprofen on the other (the recovery side).

Don't like ibuprofen (the active component of Advil and Motrin)? Use another pain relief related molecule on your cozy.

Are Scientists Nerds?

Does designing science related knitting patterns make me a complete nerd?
