Open Hex Closed Tri Weave Smocking Pattern
The Open Hex Closed Tri Weave smocking pattern features a woven effect in three directions and I came up with this design by finding what points came together in the eponymous origami tessellation with open hexagon and closed triangle twists on the same side of the paper.
The texture is formed by stitching groups of points together on the wrong side of the fabric - no folding needed!
Since these patterns can be repeated infinitely to cover any size of fabric, the PDF shows a subset of the pattern that can be printed or cut out with a Cricut so it can be used as a stencil to copy the pattern onto whatever size of fabric you're using for your project.
This particular pattern has a more secure placement of the bars of the weave than other similar patterns because each bar is secured by two groups of points.
There is no required ordering of stitching the groups of points together in this pattern.
This is an ideal smocking pattern for Christmas stockings, pillows, and more projects where you want a puffy texture that maintains its appearance even with pressure from behind the smocking.
