The Marianne socks are the second pair in the Sense and Sensibility Collection, based on Jane Austen’s classic novel. Marianne Dashwood, the Sensibility to her sister Elinor’s Sense, is romantic, clever, and passionate. These socks were designed to reflect her tendency towards sentimentality without moderation, from the garter ribbed cuff to the flowery lace panel.

They are knit cuff down, in the round, with a heel flap and gusset and a wedge toe. The all-over stitch pattern is a simple mix of knits and purls, and the lace panel is mirrored on each sock. Written and charted instructions are included. All measurements are listed in inches and centimeters.
