Smocking Stencils by Maggie Hofmann
Smocking no longer has to be a guessing game (especially for beginners) with these helpful stencils by Marggie Hofmann, author of Smocking Secrets. Use any of the 4 templates provided to create the perfect smocking grid. The templates come in three sizes: 3/4”, 1”, and 1 1/4” grids. Plus, larger grids can be created by skipping a box, for example the 3/4” grid becomes a 1 1/2” grid when every other hole is marked. Don’t worry, numbers are printed on each side of the template to help keep track of where you are in marking your pattern.
