Free pattern: Ethanol molecule

You can make any molecule using this pattern! I made an ethanol molecule for a friend because it looks like a dog and she studies chemistry 🙂 This was one of the first patterns I made and I found it while cleaning my room. This also explains why the picture is such bad quality …

This is what the molecule looks like, but of course you can also make other molecules by making a different amount of balls.

I made 2 large blue balls, 1 large red ball and 6 small white balls. After sewing these together, I wrapped some black yarn around the transition between the balls.

  1. Hello, I just started doing crochet and I love that idea. Can you please tell me how do you do the black parts and how do you connect them?
    I do appreciate.

    1. I sewed the parts to each other and wrapped some black yarn around it to get the black part! I hope you like the pattern
