    Method of preparing the graph

    Preparation of graph is little different from others.I will explain it with drawings so that it will be easy to understand
    Step 1
    .Draw a graph of 4cms having 17 squares in width as well as in length on the wrong side of the material.Group them in to big squares having 9 squares in each as shown in the figure.I have coloured them orange so that it will be easy to understand.
    step2
    Mark the mid points outer sides of small squares and name them A,B.C,D,E,F,G,H and L.join them together by lines as shown in the figure by green lines.
    step 3
    Smocking is done only on the squares which I have coloured green.
    step 4
    Smocking is done only on the squares which I have coloured green.

    step 5 and 6
    Make a mark on the squares that should be smocked.Smocking is done on the green squares by joining 4 points 1,2,3,and 4.
    Let us consider one set of 9 squares

    Make a mark on the squares that should be smocked.Smocking is done on the green squares by joining 4 points 1,2,3,and 4.
    step 7
    Smock the 4 squares in the corners by joining 4 points.Please note smocking is done on the wrong side of the material. Method is here Observe the triangles formed.I have shown them by arrows.
