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.
