Gingerbread Houses is reminiscent of cozy evenings and snowy villages. Knitted in an eye-catching contrast color, it will be sure to brighten up your winter!

This pattern is suitable for an adventurous advanced beginner (and beyond) but does assume a basic knowledge of hat construction and working in the round.
