What's the name of the sonnet form that looks like it rhymes, but doesn't rhyme when read out loud?

Many years ago I remember reading about a sonnet form where the final words in lines would look like they'd rhyme, but they didn't (i.e. "rhyming" tough and through). I've come across references to it sometimes through the years but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called.
Extra bonus points if you can point me towards an example of the form.
