Smocking Tutorial: The Surface Honeycomb Stitch

Surface Honeycomb Smocking tutorial

It's time for another smocking tutorial! One of my favorite smocking stitches is Surface Honeycomb. It is considered an advanced stitch because the thread passes through each pleat twice, but don't let that scare you; it is quite simple to stitch. In fact in some ways I think it is easier than the Wave Stitch if you are smocking across a row because the threads touch each other so it is immediately obvious if you make a mistake.
