Maths and Crochet

An unusual way of modeling non-Euclidean Geometry, in fact the only way to make a physical model of hyperbolic space that allows us to feel, and to tactilely explore, the properties of this unique geometry: crochet. You can see more and read about it here.
Since March is woman's month, here is one more homage to the women Mathematicians- and one more of their contributions!


  1. This photo brought me back to my childhood !
    My grandmother used to make such masterpieces which she called "sea flowers". Though she knew nothing about geometry, euclidean or non euclidean, she could see the beauty in it !

  2. I find working with textiles very relaxing. Even if you don't know about geometry, there is a lot of Maths involved in crochet, cross stitch, knitting. And results are reasonable, beautiful, ordered. So, not only music but needle work has connection with Maths.
