The Elemental: Noble Gases & Halogens is from my “SCIENCE IS BEAUTIFUL” series. Noble Gases and Halogens are the most colorful elements on the periodic table. Each element is depicted with its accurate electron configuration with “electron” beads in the color of the element. This is the second of three designs involving elements (see also, Elemental: Birth of a Supernova and Elemental: Colors of Metal).

This pattern is also available as part of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Partnership, found HERE.
