Awesome.  I have been wondering for ages why nobody had attempted a mathematically accurate crocheted sphere (other than the fact that it's complicated).  And now you have done it.  And I shall have to try your pattern for it, at least once, because of its awesomeness.

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

You are so utterly awesome for posting this pattern!

I was just wondering how I would go about crocheting an ideal spear for one of my pieces.

Love love love!

This is fantastic!  Do you think the same principle would work for a knitted object, or are knitted stitches too different in dimension to crochet?  (Sorry if it's a dumb question, my maths/knowledge of crochet vs knit stitch dimensions is a little rusty!)  The reason I ask is that my friend loves the Carmen Miranda type orange singing Carmen from Sesame St (got her into a lifetime love of opera, believe it or not!) - here's the youtube link :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG-0_p_yefg&feature=PlayList&p=0C82DB214157974D&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=8

and I want to knit her her own for her birthday  Grin (can't crochet).  Your input/advice would be much appreciated!
I bow to your awesomeness!

Oooo, good question. I, unfortunately, don't know the first thing about how to knit (it's on my to-learn list), but I do know that knitted balls seem to be worked in wedges as opposed to spirals. This would mean you would need a different pattern. (You could try scouting for different methods online, though).
But your singing orange idea sounds adorable!

Fantastic!  And to think I never thought I would use much math out of school.  My math teacher is probably laughing maniacally  Grin

Those are such beautiful spheres!  I used to know math, once upon a time...
Can't say it better than this ^^^


And we do need to explore the knit version of a mathish sphere. Knit stitches end up being rectangular, but single crochet stitches are fairly square.
