Purl stitch outlined hearts float on a background of lace bordered on one side by thick ribbing. The shape of the heats is subtle- after all, you can't always wear your heart on your sleeve (or hat)! A few increases after the ribbing give the hat a gentle beret shape without too much floppiness. Charts and written directions for hearts and lace are included.
