Halloween, derived from Samhain, is the time of year when the veil between two worlds is the thinnest. In my history, was my godmother/aunt, Ita Marie Breslin, who crocheted ever since I can remember. She never used patterns, she just saw in her mind what she wanted and set to work. The gold hat is one she made for my mother years ago. Wednesday, 7 October 2009, 'Aunt' Ita crossed over to the otherside of the veil.
In the past couple of nights since learning this, I sat down and reconstructed the hat as a tribute to her ability, crafting and love.
So I present Breslin's Beret orginally designed by Ita M. Breslin in the 70's. Pattern available here
