Open Hex Closed Tri Weave Physical Smocking Templates
Smocking patterns show groups of points to gather together in order to produce a repeated (tessellated) texture on the opposite side of the fabric.
Clear templates with connected points are the easiest way to transfer smocking patterns onto fabric - a big improvement over the traditional method of drawing a grid on your fabric, then marking the groups of points!
These 12"x12" templates come in two pattern densities - coarse and fine - and are made like a stencil from flexible PET plastic.
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.
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.
The PDF pattern is also included in your purchase of a physical template to provide more information about the pattern (notably the shrinkage so you can plan how much fabric you'll need for your project) and about how to use the template.
The pattern density does not affect the shrinkage rate, and your template will ship within 3 business days from when your order is placed.
