Microbes Crochet Pattern!!

Streptobaccillus is a bacteria that grows in chains. You can make as many as you'd like. Don't be limited by 2! To finish these guys off, just sow the ends of each rod back to back.

First up, Streptobacilli!

Make (2+) !

Make a magic circle made of 3 sc in loop (3).

Round 1: 2 sc in each stitch around (6).

Round 2: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) repeat three times (9).

Round 3: (sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st) repeat 3 times (12).

Round 4-8: sc in each st around

Round 9: (sc in next 2 st, dec in next st) repeat 3 times (9).

Round 10: (sc in next st, dec in next st) repeat 3 times (6).

Round 11: dec in each st around (3).

Break off. 

Euglena is a eukaryote with a flagella. They're actually only supposed to have one flagella, but I added two cause I thought it looked cuter. Feel free to chop off a tail if you'd like  😉 

 

Hold the piece flat, and slip stitch across through both sides to seal close the whole as pictured.

 

 

Thread a piece of yarn through the middle bottom of euglena and tie a knot there. Now you have flagella! Euglena in done. Feel free to embellish with googly eyes like I did. 

Make a magic circle made of 3 sc in loop (3).

Round 1: sc in each st (3).

Round 2: sc 2x in each st (6).

Round 3: sc in each st around (6).

Round 4:(1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) repeat three times (9).

Round 5: (sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st) repeat 3 times (12).

Round 6: sc in each st around (12).

Round 7: sc in the next 3 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 st, sc2tog, sc in next 4 st (12).

Round 8: sc2tog, sc2tog, sc next 8 st (10).

Round 9: sc 2x in next 3 st, sc in next 7 st (13).

Round 10: sc2tog, sc2tog, stop (11).

Break off. 

 

With a yarn needle, stitch on some random spots onto the euglena to give it some ba-dazz. After you're done.

 

 

 

 

Despite of how it looks, this virus is more vicious then you think. Meet ebola.

This is the easiest pattern of the bunch. 

Make a magic circle made of 4 sc in loop (4).

Rounds 2-52: sc around (and around, and around, and around!)

Round 53: sk 1, 1 sc, break off. 

 

Staphylococci are also gram positive bacteria with a round shape. They normal cluster together in strange arrangements, thus, I showed them together in random angles. 

Make 5 (you can actually make as many as you'd like. I just went with 5 myself).

Make a magic circle made of 3 sc in loop (3).

Round 1: 2 sc in each st (6).

Round 2: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) repeat three times (9).

Round 3: (1 sc in next st, sc2tog) repeat 3 times (6).

Round 4: sc2tog around (3).

Break off. 

Arrange them into any weird shape you'd like, and simply sow all the pieces together. 

The final microbe we have is bacillus, another rod shaped bacteria. Unlike euglena, bacillus moves with pili, the furry things you see around its body. 

 

 

At this point you can begin adding the pili to your bacillus. To do so, pull some yarn through the edge where you want to make the pili as pictured. Don't pull all the way yet. Now with the hook, pull both ends through and tighten. You'll have 2 pili done! Continue all the way around the bacillus and trim the yarn ends when you're done until you are content with how it looks. 

Make a magic circle made of 4 sc in loop (4).

Round 1: sc 2x in each st around (8).

Round 2: (sc in the next st, sc 2x in next st) repeat around (12). 

Round 3: (1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st) repeat around (16).

Round 4: (1 sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st) repeat around (20).

Rounds 5-10: sc in each st around (20).

Round 11: (1 sc in next 3 st, sc2tog) repeat around (16).

Round 12: (1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st) repeat around (12). 

Round 13: (sc in next st, sc2tog) repeat around (8)

Round 14: sc2tog around (4). 

Sk 1 st, sl st to next st. Break off.
