I sat down and reconstructed the hat as a tribute to her ability, crafting and love.
My godmother/aunt, Ita Marie Breslin, 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 left us and crossed over to eternity.

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

Worsted weight yarn
size I hook

ch = chain
sc = sc crochet
ss = slip stitch

Cluster Stitch: *Yarn over hook, through stitch, yarn over and pull thru* Repeat between ** once. Yarn over through all loops on hook, chain 1.

Do not join between rounds

Work rounds 1 through 12 in back loops only.
