Looking for Patterns related to Chemistry
Hello

I wanted to do a scarf for my chemistry professor, but I can't find some suitable patterns. (I'm not trying to get good marks, just wanting to try new things and be nice to people :D)
I thought of something related to chemistry, like molecules and such.

That thought came to me because I tried to design a pattern yesterday...

I already found a DNA helice pattern, but that's more biology related.

So, I have come up with something, though it doesn't really look good. Not really what I'm aiming for. But it's only my second try, and I went a bit crazy with all the stitches :D
The second, not so big chart is meant to be knit after the other one, before beginning that again.

Do you have any patterns that would fit?

I saw this pattern - http://audm.wordpress.com/2008/03/11...c-hat-pattern/ and was thinking maybe you could take a scientific name or something like on this pattern and extend it the length of the scarf?

That's what I was looking for, thank you so much !

Any tips for making it lacy? I was aiming for something lacy, since I only have lace weight yarn...

In fact that also was my major problem with the pattern, since somehow I have to make the pattern stand out, like a second color, but only in one color, in lace...
I would have enough ideas, but just don't know how to put it into lace...

I wouldn't think lace would work well with your intended idea. It just wouldn't show up. You could do a lace edge though which would give it the feel of something more delicate if that is what you're going for.

Hm,... I think I'll just drop this project. It was an idea...
And I have more than enough other lace scarves to do, but thanks for your help
