Wool into stone by Amy Tyler, Stone Sock Fibers

Wool into stone

January 2009
Varies - throw to blanket size

The state stone of Michigan is the petoskey stone (Hexagonaria percarinatae). Amy designed a wall hanging that is a knitted representation of the petoskey stone. It is made of undyed, natural colors of Shetland wool and is composed of hand spun and hand knitted “medallions” that were crocheted together. She also has made afghans using this technique.
It works with various yarn weights, colors and needle sizes.
