Computational Crochet

In physical space, yarn and loops sing the romance of curving hyperbolic planes. Bending, swirling, creating infinite seas of surface area. To better understand these mystical forms we built them from the ground up in digital space. This project aims to understand both the mathematics and mystery behind hyperbolic crocheted geometry by recreating its beauty with high fidelity.
Crochet construction process:
1. Base form
2. Subdivision
3. 3d loft
4. Apply stitch curves
5. Apply stitch thickness
