Gold Hyperbolic Crochet

I've made another hyperbolic form...I think I'm addicted! I bought a nice 4ply gold mercerised cotton, and using a 2mm needle, I increased 1 in every 2 stitches. Here it is in the making!!

Finished at Last!! Hyperbolic Crochet...the Video

I finished the Pseudosphere - down to the last thread. As this is a 1 in 3 increase, I'm interested to try some different colours, and increases. I hope you enjoy the video, please feel free to pass the link onto others!

Yeah! It's posted!

Today I posted my first Hyperbolic Crochet to The Institute for Figuring in L.A., it's on a long journey from Down Under, but it's exciting to be part of such an amazing and exciting project. I'm hoping to be able to see some photos from the exhibit.

I started a new Hyperbolic Crochet, fine cotton on a 2mm crochet hook. It is very sweet and the ice-cream colours look great!!

Here are some photos of the progress of the "pseudosphere":

My First Post

Hi there. Well I'm joining the Blogging ranks, and from what I've seen - I'm impressed by the talents of Bloggers everywhere! I hope to share my creative journey here. Tracking the creative process from concept to creation (and critique).

Today I was excited to complete a project I started a few months ago, and had put to the side for too long. Hyperbolic Crochet caught my attention - it excited the creative process, with a mathematical flavour, just enough for me to understand! The Institute for Figuring is a fascinating site for the avid crocheter who isn't afraid of a little brainfood. Yum.

Here are the photos of my FIRST Hyperbolic crochet, process and completion.Here is a detailed photo, showing the crenelations that are achieved from Hyperbolic Crochet, and a constant rate of increase. In this case, 1 in 3. In this case each 'row' increases by 33 1/3 % on the previous row!!
