Ok, so a fourth spatial dimensional shape may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you are crocheting, but nothing like a challenge I say. So what is a fourth dimensional hypercube I don't hear you ask? Well, if you look at the diagrams below, it is the next spatial dimension up from a cube and yes, we are getting into the realms of parallel universes, space travel and unicorns, but when we show the hypercube in its two dimensional form, that is, showing it on paper as it were as seen below, it makes a rather pretty pattern called a tesseract, and that is where I started my design.


If you look closely you can see the two cubes within the hypercube and perhaps even more cubes if you look closely. I say spatial dimension because it is often thought by physicists that the fourth dimension is actually time, but without frying my own brain on astrophysics and ringing up Stephen Hawking I shall swiftly move on to the pattern in hand.

Materials Required
- You can use any yarn and hook size suitable for the yarn you are using that you like, but choose at least three to four different colours so you can see the pattern clearly
