I have never seen a smocked headband, but had the idea that a it could make a something that would be great for a really special occasion. It would also give a bit of elasticity, which would make fitting easy, and it would be more comfortable for the wearer. I am so pleased with the results. My pattern outlines how to make two different styles of headband. It introduces the basic pleating techniques, and teaches you five stitches. Once you have started smocking there will be no stopping you. Smocking is a lovely craft, and if you have not done it before, my pattern with its simple diagrams and photographs, is a great introduction. At the end you will have something that is unique, beautiful and useful. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Machine sewing Hand embroidery SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Head-sized

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
