Inspired by the timeless tale by Hans Christian Anderson, Gerda’s Love starts as simple accessories with a basic 2X2 ribbing edge. This feeds into a bold (as Gerda, maybe?) lace heart pattern that is accented by beads placed like little flecks of mirror on the surface of it. This pattern is my very first hat pattern. I gave the option for two different styles. The shorter version has a slight slouch to it unless you have a ton of hair like I do and then it looks like a stocking hat. The longer version has a more pronounced slouch. As usual my mitts have a lot of negative ease.

This pattern is six pages with full color photos and charts.
