The salt crystals that form on the edges of the Great Salt Lake are beautiful and varied. On rare occasions, the halite crystals grow so rapidly, the interior does not have time to form, creating a geometric hoppered shape. These hopper salt crystals can be removed from the lake bed like pulling teeth, giving you a perfect crystal of receding concentric squares.

I live and work in Salt Lake City yet I am woefully ignorant about the Great Salt Lake. I am attempting to learn more about the lake that has recently inspired me…and to knit that inspiration. I hope you like the patterns I am creating.
