lysozyme. While the finished 3D structure would be overwhelming to tackle all at once, it's manageable to put together after making the secondary structure first.
Patterns for individual proteins as well as instructions for making your own "translations" are forthcoming.
Thanks to Sandy for teaching me the technique of working around a wire at the Fiber Arts Work Night at the Artisan's Asylum!

Not only are diatoms awesome in and of themselves, but their complex shapes prompted me to learn some interesting lacework techniques in the quest to approximate them in yarn, which I wrote about here. Also, I had a great time constructing the radiolaria. I think you will too!
So, I put together one pdf containing all 11 of these patterns. They're basically in the format I supplied to the publishing company: the patterns are abbreviated, but there is a hand-drawn chart for each one. There's also a legend included on page 2 to help you decipher the text and charts.
