Mitosis Cross Stitch Pattern

I LOVE the process of mitosis.  It's one of the first things that drew me to Biology in High School.  I have embroidered it before, but now I have created my own cross stitch pattern.

On it, you can see one cell going through Mitosis and then Cytokinesis to form two daughter cells.  I wanted it to be small, so it is very simplified.  (Like, no homologous chromosomes!  So these cells belong to some haploid organism with only two chromosomes.)  But it's still pretty.

Here is the link.  Have at it, ye scientists!

Next, I will try to figure out something to do with genetics, because genetics rocks! 


  1. I love it! I am a Biology major and would love if you could do a Meiosis pattern to go along with it! I have several Biology friends who would like to stitch them as well!!! Thank you!!!

  2. I'm glad you like it! I'll see what I can do about meiosis since I bet that could turn out awesome.
