Hyperbolicring

Lindsay, who likes “sciences and making art”, added these pictures of her new creation, the hyperbolic ring to the CRAFT flickr pool. I asked Lindsay just what was her inspiration in creating this. Here’s what she said:

“A couple of weeks ago I saw the crocheted coral reef featured on Design Sponge, so I spent some time looking at that, and then looked up some instructions on making hyperbolic shapes on Google. I don’t crochet, but the basic idea (add an extra stitch on a regular basis) translated pretty easily to peyote stitch. It’s basic tubular peyote stitch, except I added two beads instead of one every three stitches. This is the first time I’ve come up with my own design for making something in peyote stitch, and I’m really pleased with how it came out.” Link.
