Vintage Inspired Hanky

Inspired by some of the booklets at, I did a simple, filet edging on a 12" linen handkerchief.  I've never considered finishing an edge with single crochet.  Turns out it works quit well.  I used size 10 crochet cotton, which I realize now is much to heavy for the lightweight linen.  Next time I'll try embroidery floss.  This was fun and worked up in just a couple hours, the hardest part was getting the single crochets even.
