Watch: Crocheted coral w/hyperbolic geometry

Finally some math & science cred for crafters. Watch this TEDTalk by Margaret Wertheim who is leading a project bringing attention to coral reefs, mathematic figuring and other brilliant endeavors - using crochet of course. Crochet is the ONLY way to accurately recreate hyperbolic shapes in the real world - who knew!

Get the patterns! You too can create your own crocheted coral. Patterns created by "In Stitches" for the Sydney reef project are availabe here.
