Marianne Kinzel was a mid-20th century designer of knitted lace patterns. She was born and raised in Bohemia, attending the Art and Needlework College in Prague,[1] but later emigrated with her husband Walter to England.

When she started designing patterns, she had some difficulty finding a publisher, so she and her husband formed their own publishing company, Artistic Needleworks Publications, through which she published both individual patterns and later entire pattern books.[2]
