I have a few favorite parts to this pattern. I really love the beanie with the tie in the back.
I had never designed anything at all that even closely resembled a corset.
The stitch pattern I created for the texture and colorwork for the corset was something that I felt kind of resembled the strings used to draw corsets tightly on the body.
There are drawstrings in the back to get a form fit. There are cute little wrist warmers as well to complete the set.
These pieces could easily be used separately and they don’t need to be Halloween theme.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
