Water Molecule – Free Crochet Pattern

When I was in school science was one of my favorite subjects. I’ve always been nerdy like that. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that when a very punny idea came into my head I ran with it.

Oh no! There is water all over my book!

Random side note, the book pictured is actually an 80s edition of the Encyclopedia of Diseases and Conditions. Fun fact.

Without further ado, here is the pattern. If you would prefer to buy an ad-free printable version you can click here to find this pattern in my Ravelry store.
