So I made this for a friend who is into marine biology for his birthday.
I got all the inspiration from google and pinterest
I learned how to crochet "ribs" and corkscrews
Most of the other specimen are just somehow crocheted in rounds with more or less increases
The red coral is armed with a wire that I crocheted around
I tried to use rather "tamed" colors, he is not too much into vivid ones (at least that is my guess)
Lets keep fingers crossed he likes it  Grin

This is great! Love the colors you used! You should take a look at the hyperbolic crochet exhibit at the Smithsonian. It is so huge and they have multiple sections since so many people donated pieces. I'm sure there are images of it on Google.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Congratulations on being featured! This is one fabulous piece of crafting - and it would look awesome being worn too...

I would love a pair of shoes with this material and design Grin (then again, when I see something fabulous, the first thought always goes to how this could be worn... that way the whole world could see it)

Super fantastic! Have you seen the massive crochet coral reef project? If there's a satellite chapter near you I bet they'd love it if you joined!
I posted some links in this thread Smiley. I'm just learning about hyperbolic crochet etc. So cool.

I'm pretty sure you can start another one! There was just an exhibit in Toronto so it seems to still be relevant. I'm going to see what I can find in my city, I so want to participate in making some of those incredible sea creatures.
