Celebration Blanket – Block 8: Smashing Smocking FREE Knitting Pattern PDF
Block 8 of 12 of the Celebration Blanket by Ewe Ewe Yarns
Designed by Allyson Dykhuizen for Ewe Ewe Yarns
I was really inspired by Heather’s note to knit something you love with this block and I love texture! And the smocking stitch creates texture dialed to 11. Smocking looks more complicated than it really is which makes it feel like knitting magic. I hope you enjoy working this block into your blanket and are inspired to seek out working more smocking into your knitting!
