Heritage Hat 

The Heritage Hat is a hand crocheted hat which is made using yarn from my great grandmothers repair swing box. The yarns are all weak and brittle after years of lying in the box, so I created a hat to incorporate all of the left overs and to give the yarns a new purpose.

The hat has also got a face which watches everything that happens behind me. Guarding me when I’m feeling sensitive and tired. It becomes my friend so I am never alone.
