Lover of biology or chemistry? Then this pattern is for you…

A rock n’ roll crochet wrap based on DNA double helix. An advanced beginner rectangular shawl pattern worked in ‘waves’ to create the illusion of helices with a contrast band of surface crochet across variegated chain stitches to give the impression of the AC / GT bases.

This pattern was designed with women working the STEM fields in mind. Show off your artistic ability alongside that juicy brain power!

Garment Specifics
Construction: Rectangular shawl worked horizontally, with a variegated stripe with some surface crochet embroidery.
Yarn: Delicate and lightweight 4ply with surface crochet in a heavier DK yarn in a contrasting colour.

All yarns were gifted to me by Mad Scientist Yarns. Yarns and pattern kits can be purchased from their website here.

I strongly suggest using stitch markers to help you with stitch placement, particularly with the longer stitches.
