Block 8 of 12 of the Celebration Blanket by Ewe Ewe Yarns

Designed by Allyson Dykhuizen

I was really inspired by Heather’s note to knit something you love with this block and I love texture! And the smocking stitch creates texture dialed to 11. Smocking looks more complicated than it really is which makes it feel like knitting magic. I hope you enjoy working
this block into your blanket and are inspired to seek out working more smocking into your knitting!
