I adore math-related crochet. I love colorful, visually stunning crochet that embraces unique shapes. How could I not love the following examples of crochet fractals, especially the rainbow ones although they’re all beautiful?!

    I saw that pastel fractal flame crochet and almost passed out. I have so got to do this.

      That one is just an art piece so to my knowledge there isn’t a pattern for it.

    On the fractal design when you turn your project-increases- do you pick up two threads for you double crochet or just one. I notice that there is a ridge and I am picking up two threads. Is this right?

      I haven’t actually worked any of these crochet fractal patterns myself yet. My assumption would be that you pick up two threads (since it doesn’t say back loop or front loop only).

    I just got the pattern for the fractal doily and am wondering if the people that did each vane in a different color did them separately or changed colors at each different one? hope that made sense
