Herringbone Weave Smocking Pattern
The Herringbone Weave smocking pattern features a woven effect in the herringbone style and I came up with this design by extrapolating from my Herringbone Weave origami tessellation design.
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 special feature, which is a line that passes through the pattern in a way that any seam along that line will be completely hidden from view after smocking. These lines are vertical in the pattern PDF.
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.
