I have been obsessed with corsets for years. To me, they are a study of contrast. For example, corsets are prim and proper and yet can be very very sexy. Corsets are the reason I finally settled down and taught myself how to crochet. I had tried unsuccessfully the year before and, while I took to knitting rather well, crochet mystified me. I scoured the net searching for patterns. It is during this search that I first found Knitty and the wonderful work of Marnie MacLean. But although I found many wonderful patterns (all for free - Yea!), they were mainly knit. I had yet to find patterns which satisfied the craving for steamier crochet patterns. That is, until I encountered Jennifer Hansen's ultra sexy tunisian crochet cincher in Vogue Knitting Holiday 2004 issue. WOW.

I needed to make it.

Years later, although I have created and designed a few of my own crochet corsets, that very first cincher from Ms Hansen is still one of my faves.

Colours, textures, contrast. Crochet corsets have it all.
