I’ve only just heard about this thing called Hyberbolic Crochet.  Now I can’t stop searching for it.  For those that want to know what exactly Hyperbolic Crochet is, read on …

Hyperbolic Crochet is the name given to applying a mathematical principle to crochet patterns. A hyperbolic plane expands exponentially from any point on its surface, always curving away from itself. You can easily crochet a hyperbolic surface by increasing at a constant rate throughout the piece.


Hyperbolic growth in nature gives rise to the ruffled shapes of coral, kelp, and sea anemone.  The Institute for Figuring created the concept of the Coral Reef with hyperbolic crochet and have been developing this concept since 2005. More information about the project may be seen on their website http://www.theif.org
