aquaeri: a piece of hyperbolic crochet (hyperbolic crochet)
[personal profile] aquaeri posting in [community profile] intertwined
Vonda McIntyre describes how she does hyberbolic crochet and beadwork here and here.

(I do my own hyperbolic crochet a different way, and I may even make a post describing how, one of these days, but I thought the community needed a bit more life. And I support every and all ways of constructing hyperbolic surfaces.)

Nifty! I've played with hyperbolic crochet, and hers is different but cool looking.

Oooh, I love the beaded nudibranch.

I suspect that one could do three-dimensional hyperbolic embroidery with detached buttonhole stitch (I may even have seen something approaching that technique used for flowers, although not in a truly hyperbolic way). Not entirely sure how one would start it, unless one starts the first row over some kind of ring.

I'll have to play around with this!
