I've been crocheting up a storm lately, so here are a couple of projects.

I modified a couple of patterns for this guy. The leaves and vine were made connected and the flowers added after.

I was inspired by some models of hyperbolic geometry I found at
The Institute for Figuring (http://www.theiff.org/oexhibits/oe1e.html) and made my own.
I used single crochet and increased in every other stitch.
I'm thinking of making tons more and hanging them as a mobile or something.

I love it!  Very cute!  And the hyperbolic connection just goes to show that the stuff you learn in math is actually used in real life! Cheesy

Well, I don't actually know the math. I just like the way they look.
Thanks!

Ooo, did you see the article Discover magazine had about a Russian mathematics professor who did the crochetted hyperbolic mathematic models?  It was really awesome.  I bought it for that article and one on a theory that viruses might be the origin of life.....where did I put that....Anyways, it had many different models, they were quite impressive.  I think it was last year?

Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

I did not see that article but I found a few on the internet. Most of them were about Daina Taimina from Cornell. I gave a speech on crochet last week and was doing research when I rediscovered them. Unfortunately I ran long and didn't get to talk about the models.  Cry
The galleries from The Institute for Figuring are so amazing and inspiring. The ones sent in by readers are among my favorite!
I'll try this link again. http://www.theiff.org/gallery/index.html#

Your scarf is very pretty, it looks great. And I love all the hyperbolic stuff, it looks so fascinating.
