And under the fold a detail.

    This is so off the wall and cool…is there a pattern for this somewhere? I am an avid crocheter and would love to challenge myself with this project!

    • Thanks!
      the pattern is pretty simple actually: just crochet a triangle with three equal sides, then along one of the sides, add a new triangle of the same size. Keep adding triangles such that in every corner seven triangles meet.

      (With six triangles meeting in a point, you get a flat surface, and with five, four, or three you get different platonic solids.)

      Good luck with trying hour hand at it!
