From the pattern description
Lace Puffs Smoke Ring features lace knitting with lots of dimensional interest in an interplay of positive and negative space.

This smoke ring begins at the top edge with a wide band of softly textured puffs arising from a ground of laciness. The design then transitions into a wide ribbing where the double eyelets create negative space to mirror the positive space of the puffs. Finally, the knitting returns to puffs that widen at the bottom of the ring for a bit of flare.

An added bonus is that the scalloped edges at beginning and end of the ring form naturally due to the bias structure of the lace pattern creating the puffs.

Pattern stitches used in making the smoke ring are both charted and written out.
