Graduate Student
Mathematics Department, University of Virginia

I have crocheted for most of my life and have always been most interested in creating things that are both attractive and useful. My life as a graduate student in mathematics inspires motifs that I use in my work.

Penrose Doily
Cotton thread

This is a doily whose pattern was inspired by a Penrose tiling.

Penrose Snood
Cotton thread

This is a snood whose central motif was inspired by a penrose tiling.
