Hyperbolic Crochet Project

In our class we are studying hyperbolic crochet through projects generated by the Wertheim sisters behind the Institute for Figuring.

Here is a link to their fantastic website. 

 Look at my excitement with two very lovely hyperbolic crocheted pieces. The friendly grey one on my shoulder is a simple hyperbolic plane with an increase at one in every 3. The frilly cream one which I'm still working on is a pseudosphere with a rate of increase at one in every 6, graduating to one in every 3.

Here are some samples of other hyperbolic crochet works:

And here are a few other hyperbolic crochet links:
