SMOCKING: On right side of garment run a basting thread thru the 10 center ribs of K 1, 5 rows below the bound off sts at front of neck. Run 2 more basting threads below the first, with 5 rows between each. Working from right side, with contrasting color yarn, if desired, insert needle under first and second ribs of K 1 at first basting, passing needle over the 3 P sts between. Draw these 2 sts together tightly, and work over them in an overhand st twice (smocking st). Fasten off on wrong side. Repeat smocking over 3rd and 4th ribs, and each successive K rib across the row until 5 smock sts have been made. Repeat smocking every 6th row until 3 smocked rows in all have been made.
