Some researchers at the University of Bristol have developed a unique way to visualize the Lorenz manifold: by crocheting it!

An article from BBC News describes in more detail the motivation for the crocheted Lorenz manifold, a creation of Hinke Osinga and Bernd Krauskopf. Anyone adept enough with the hook can make a Lorenz manifold of their own with only 25,511 stitches, by following the instructions they provide in their paper, downloadable from
