16S rRNA

 A couple of days ago I showed you how to crochet RNA by making a very simple structure, tRNA. The same method, however, can be used to make much  more complicated molecules, like this 16S rRNA, which is based off of this image. Made in worsted weight yarn, it measures about two feet in each dimension. Naturally, on its own, it looks like crumpled mass of yarn - so it needs to be tacked to fabric to show its shape.
