Crochet Designers and About Crochet Design (list)

Inspiration is everywhere! Explore the following links and see what is going on in the world of crochet design.

And finally, a search on Amazon this morning brought up this surprising book!

  • Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes by Daina Taimina
    "This richly illustrated book discusses non-Euclidean geometry and the hyperbolic plane in an accessible way. The author provides instructions for how to crochet models of the hyperbolic plane, pseudosphere, and catenoid/helicoids. With this knowledge, the reader has a hands-on tool for learning the properties of the hyperbolic plane and negative curvature. The author also explores geometry and its historical connections with art, architecture, navigation, and motion, as well as the history of crochet, which provides a context for the significance of a physical model of a mathematical concept that has plagued mathematicians for centuries."



After writing the post above, I ordered the following books on Amazon. Become a "follower" of Appalachian Morning and you'll find out when I post reviews/comments/work I've done from these books, including a long musing on my love of felt:
