Stitch Diva Outerwear Corset Crochet Pattern
 

The corset has been used for centuries as an undergarment. The historic practice of accentuating the feminine waist has made a comeback, this time as outerwear. Similar to the corsets appearing on runways recently, this Stitch Diva corset is meant to be worn much like a belt, over a tailored stretch shirt or a skimpy tank top. Not only does it define the waist, it gently flattens the tummy, providing the flat abs one may not have the time or discipline to acquire at the gym. This corset is crocheted over boning by using a mix of standard and Tunisian crochet techniques. The rows of Tunisian crochet serve to provide firm structure, while the rows of standard crochet not only provide textural counterpoint, but provide openness and ventilation to the design as well. Advanced skill level is required. The pattern is best suited for knitters/crocheters able to work patterns with complicated shaping and finishing. Finished size is will fit waists from 24 to 42 inches. A 32" waist is pictured. Height = 8" x Waist = 24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42)".

The corset is pictured in Berroco Suede with Lana Grossa India ribbon yarn. To create the corset as pictured, you will need 2 balls of Berroco Suede for waists 24"-34" and 3 balls of Berroco Suede for waists 36"-42". You will need 2.5-3.5 yards of ribbon yarn. Substitute yarn gauge (as stated on yarn label) is 19 sts = 4 inches (worsted weight). To see our worsted weight yarns, click here. You can use any ribbon or ribbon yarn for the closure.

Suggested crochet hooks are an I Afghan Hook and a standard I Crochet Hook.

You will also need a darning needle, a lighter, a sewing needle, coordinating thread, and coordinating beads (optional).
