A few months ago I took a trip with one of my oldest and dearest friends to Ireland. I fell in love with Ireland and it’s people on our very first day. Ireland has always held a certain draw for me (mostly thanks to Van Morrison) and when I was walking down Grafton Street in Dublin, and a man began playing Raglan Road on his violin, I knew that I was exactly where I was supposed to be.

To remember our 8 day journey across the entire country, I designed these two hats. A different hat for each of us, out of one hank of yarn. We were on the same trip, but we each experienced it through our own eyes, so it seemed fitting to make them slightly different.
