Ursula Lowe and colleagues are knitting and crocheting all 118 elements of the chemistry reference tool to tie in with 2019 being the International Year of The Periodic Table (IYPT).
The knitted item will be hung in college, once it is complete, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the table.
Ursula said: "I was inspired after I went to a lecture at the Cambridge Science Festival given by Yuri Organessian, a Russian nuclear physicist, who is the only living scientist with an element named after him.
"I then visited a periodic table exhibition and by chance saw an article on Twitter about teachers at Aberdeen University knitting a version of it.
"So I got my crochet hooks out and decided to create our own version for Cambridge Regional College.
"Ours is a mix of crochet and knit and will hopefully be completed before the end of the year and displayed in the Learning Resources Centre."
