    Hahaha. That’s pretty awesome. (Though personally? I’d find doing the beading for the numbers more of a frustrating challenge.)

    I have a pattern somewhere for a hyperbolic-type figure, where you just keep doing 2 stitches in each previous row’s stitch until the thing grows out of control, but I’ve never sat down and made it yet.

    There’s actually a wealth of sites out there if you Google “math and crochet.” Like this one. It’s pretty cool.

    (Two geeky things I love, together.)

    I will say I think KNITTING an isocahedron would be even more difficult than CROCHETING one. There is a pattern for a knitted dodecahedral ball out there, though.

    Probably more than you wanted to know but this is one of those things that makes me happy.

    Well I’m impressed. I once crocheted lap robe and it came out shaped like a trapezoid and the colors were icky, so I gave it to my Chihuahua. He didn’t mind. But he would have loved an icosahedron.
