Ah ! this mind is unfathomable. I set out this morning to crochet something else, and midway into the project I laid it out flat to take a picture. The shape in front of me, banged awake some hibernating neurons !!! And I saw the shape when twisted translating into something very simple. A simple, brilliant technique I thought. I abandoned the project I was working on, and was impatient to see if my idea translated into something credible.
I am very happy to say, it did 🙂 And here is the result. A mountain range ! All crocheted in one piece with no assembling.
And here is an aerial view of the peaks !
