Marilynn is the perfect addition to a simple dress or top for holiday gatherings or any time. Flattering high neckline and scalloped edging compliment the simple, angled shaping of this elegant garment. While Marilynn can be made with any yarn and any hook size, the designer thinks it is prettiest made with a light Worsted Weight Yarn or a substantial Sport Weight Yarn and about an H-8 (5mm) Crochet Hook. Marilynn is beautiful over a garment with any style of neckline. The long-sleeve version adds a touch of warmth and elegance to shoulder-baring holiday dresses and tops. Made with a festive, sparkly yarn, it will be just the thing to wear to holiday get-togethers this year.
Crochet the long-sleeve version for sizes XS-S (M-L, XL-1X, 2X-3X, 4X-5X) with 7 (7, 8.5, 8.5, 8.5) ounces of Worsted Weight or lighter weight yarn. Crochet the short-sleeve version with 5.5 (5.5, 6, 6, 6.5) ounces. You will also need a 1/2"-3/4" shank button (optional), or garment may be held closed with a brooch.
