Crochet and Hyperbolic Geometry

Interesting topic. These three books might be worth buying. The concept combines crochet, math, art, and nature.

YouTube: Hyperbolic Geometry within the dynamics of space and time ????????

  • euclidean space
    • a point
    • a line
    • parallel line: one line can run through the point and never touch the other line
  • spherical space
    • within a circle
    • a point
    • a straight line (curved on a sphere)
    • how many straight lines can be drawn through the point that never meet the original line. answer = 0.
    • on a sphere, the straight line (geodesic) is the biggest line that can be drawn: equator or lines of longitude.

My Little Projects

October 2015:

  • project one:
    • chained six.
    • used single crochet.
    • crocheted two stitches in each stitch.
    • at the end of each row, i think that i chained one, turned, and then two stitches in each stitch.
    • crocheted four or five rows after the chain row.
  • project two:
    • chained four.
    • slip-stitched into first stitch to make circle.
    • used single crochet.
    • six stitches into the ring.
    • then crocheted 12 additional rows, spiraling around with the following pattern:
    • one stitch, one stitch, two stitches into the previous row. is this a 1-1-2 ?

The small one is Project 1.

Another photo of Project 2.

August 2016 - Good way to use of inexpensive yarn. This uses the project 2 pattern above. It starts out slowly, but then it curls in on itself significantly.
