Nicole Smith‘s post on introduces a modern take on smocking. She says,

The…pattern variation on North American smocking, known as the lozenge, is sewn using a grid that alternates taut and slack stitches. Once you get the knack of this variation, you can try creating other designs on a grid and stitching your own version. By changing the scale, placement, or number of repeats, you can fabricate an interesting smocked look.

Learn the basics from Nicole’s tute.
