For the upcoming Corset KAL. This project will be used to demonstrate the various techniques involved in this pattern.


I-cord cast on with the Love, and knit up Chart A. I decided not to add beads at the neckline. Will be photographing that progress today.


Turned in for Charms May 2016 homework.


Frogged back to row of creating armholes because mine were too small. I will be photographing steps on how to measure yourself and adjust the pattern.


Since I couldn’t find my misplaced WIP, I decided to cast on with the other 2 skeins. Let’s see if I can finish this corset by August 1st!


I am so close to finishing my corset! I did not like how the updated Chart E was set into the fabric, so I tweaked it by removing 1 knit stitch from each side (2 stitches removed) for each time E was used. I also pushed both Chart F sets a few stitches closer to the back of the garment.

I am including this project as part of a 5-garment Detention OWL for Winter 2017. My plan is to knit the final lace charts for the bottom which changes to the black yarn, crochet the edging along the front bands and neckline. I still need to weave in all the ends, wash/block, and crochet the 22 buttons.
