Petoskey stones are the fossilized remains of ancient coral beds that have been tumbled by the waves of Lake Michigan for millions of years. The first time I saw one I couldn’t wait to see how its markings would translate into a mitten. Though the pattern has been necessarily simplified, the beauty of the fossils they emulate remains.
