The effervescent spirit of Sense and Sensibility’s Marianne Dashwood is the inspiration for Marianne Handkerchief. The vibrant colors and stitch combinations chosen for this piece represent her vitality and strength.

Marianne Handkerchief is worked in the round, and increases 8 stitches every third round to create a square-shaped cloth. A set of 5, double-pointed needles (DPNs) and 29” circular needles are recommended for this project. A repeating, charted pattern is worked in the second half of the piece and small bobbles line the edge. Marianne is worked in two colors. Most of the handkerchief is worked in the main color (MC), with a two stripes worked in a contrasting color (CC).

A crocheted chain-ring starts the project from the center. DPNs pick up the center chain-ring chains as stitches, and the piece is worked from the center to the outer edges.
