Today I did some Knitting based this setup from Burak Demirci. As input geo I used a regular tube, redid the topology procedurally so the tube had a diamond shape. Then I used 3 different splines to “project” onto each of my primitives, did some fusing and smoothing and there you go. Basketballnet!

Showcase of setup:
