My Little Acorn Napkin Ring Pattern - Fall 2016

It involves following a design row by row and discovering how the pleats react to the stitches and the way the colours of the floss make the design work. It’s like a puzzle being revealed right before your eyes stitch by stitch.

Sometimes it takes only a wee bit of stitching and the right use of colour to suggest an object and your eye does the rest. Hopefully this is what will happen here for you. The type of smocking employed in this project is called ‘picture’ smocking. The design is for an acorn, a perfect symbol for fall and the cycle of life. Fall is harvest time and a time of thanksgiving for all.
