Copper Country Crochet

First post, first pattern

Posted on: August 23, 2009

In this blog, I will post original patterns, some vintage patterns, and musings about life in the Copper Country of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Here’s the first pattern. I haven’t tested it lately, but will crochet it up soon, and post a picture.
