Worsted (9 wpi) ?
US 4 - 3.5 mm
4 inch

This pattern makes an oval-shaped bacterium about 4 inches long - that’s about 50,000 times their actual size!

Be creative and add appendages, like an i-cord for a flagellum or yarn fringe for cilia.

  • yarn: worsted-weight yarn of your choice
  • needles: double-pointed needles in about a size 4, a yarn needle
  • other materials: extra yarn for embellishments, embroidery floss, needle, buttons for eyes (optional)
