Yesterday I made this. I have no idea what it is but it was fun just letting it manifest in front of me using hyperbolic crochet principles.
I began with a short tube of single crochets and then switched to single crochet increases in each stitch. Waves began to appear much more quickly than before creating a very ruffled effect. The tube was then turned and I worked the other way; experimenting with double crochets in a chain 5 loop, with added Single crochet increases to follow.
It was nice not having a pattern and just going with my gut.
I’ve now been challenged by Shana Rae to create a dragon with hyperbolic elements… best get my thinking cap on 🙂
So last night I began a piece of hyperbolic crochet. Playing around but intrigued by all the amazing organic shapes I’ve seen.
At first my work looked like little more than a disc… (1sc, Inc) repeated over and over. But then the edges began to lift and form rolls. 🙂
I’m now recieving a steady flow of amazing ideas. Ways I can use these forms in interesting ways 🙂
I’m going to have to have a go at hyperbolic crochet. There are some amazing examples on pinterest of how how mathematical principles can modelled through crochet.
Maybe I could create a sort of mobile for a Baby or a hanging sculpture.
