Neurotransmitter Molecule Knitting Charts - Dopamine and Serotonin

I have designed many different molecule knitting charts over the years.  I love when I get requests to chart specific molecules because I know that these will turn into unique knit garments.  Recently some followers requested that I create charts for the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin.

All of the love to the Wellesley sibling who requested the dopamine knitting chart.  I hope that you are able to find someone to help you turn this into a hat for the March for Science.

Serotonin Knitting Chart - 27 sts x 18 rows
How can you incorporate these molecules into knitting projects?  You could put a bunch of molecules around the brim of a hat or headband.  You can either use stranded knitting or you could duplicate stitch the molecule onto your garment after the fact.

Do you have any molecule requests?  I can chart many molecules but the smaller the molecule the easier it will be to fit it onto a knit garment.  I have had some requests that are too complex for me to create, but I will do my best to help you out with your molecule knitting hopes and dreams.

  1. Would it be easy for you to make a norepinephrine pattern as well?! My partner is a pharmacology nerd / locus coeruleus enthusiast and would love this soooo much.

    1. That wouldn't be hard at all. I'll try to get something out on Monday.
