“Go ahead, make my millennium.” Inspired by the one and only ghost with the most, Beetlesuit is a top-down cropped yoke sweater and high-waisted pants set, featuring 3-color stranded colorwork stripes worked throughout the entire design, and wide long sleeves/pant legs with an i-cord bind off to finish.
This one has been a real labor of love, and I hope you love it as much as I do! You have the option to purchase just the sweater or pants pattern, OR if you'd like both, you can bundle and save $2 per pattern. Note, if you purchase the bundle and would like to add the patterns to your Ravelry library, you will need to email me with your order number and Ravelry username so I can manually send them to you. Kits are available for this design as well, which can be preordered here (sweater) and here (pants).
If you need any help choosing colors or have any other questions regarding the pattern or sizing, send me an email and I’m happy to help! Kit color palettes are shown in the listing photos, and the sample was made with the Wedding Suit combo.
