Like other heavy elements, metals were formed through nuclear fusion after a star died and became a supernova. Although most elements were relatively unknown before the 19th and 20th centuries, metallic elements have shaped human development from the very beginning. Even parts of our history - the Bronze Age and the Iron Age - are defined by what we as a species were doing with metal. Metallic elements have fascinated humans since we learned to walk upright and say “ooooh!”

The Elemental: Colors of Metal shawl is from my “SCIENCE IS BEAUTIFUL” series. This shawl includes an example of the colors that occur among the metallic elements - white (Ti), dark metallic grey (Fe), copper (Cu), silver (Ag), bluish-gray (Os), and gold (Au). Each element is depicted with its accurate electron configuration with “electron” beads in the color of the element.

This shawl would be perfect as a wedding shawl or veil. It is very delicate and the metallic coloring of the beads makes them very subtle. This is easily turned into a “something old/new/borrowed/blue” shawl (see in pattern notes below). This is the third of three designs involving elements (see also, Elemental: Birth of a Supernova and Elemental: Noble Gases & Halogens).

To make as shown, you will need 6.0 beads: 22 white, 26 dark metallic, 29 copper, 47 silver, 76 bluishgray, and 79 gold.


Needles: Size 7 (4.5mm): DPNs, 16" and 40" circular needles, and size 1.0mm crochet hook
