Snowdrop and Rose Red Cowl Knitting Pattern Download
The tale of Snowdrop and Rose Red differs from the better-known Snow White story. Sisters Snowdrop and Rose Red care for a half-frozen talking bear and later help an ungrateful dwarf. Upon meeting the bear and fearing for his own life, the dwarf desperately encourages the bear to eat the girls and spare him. The bear is released from the dwarf's curse and transformed into a wealthy prince.
