Lozenge smocking diagram

There are two kinds of stitching for this pattern. They alternate along each row of smocking. The first type is when you pull two stitches together as per a and b on the diagram. The next stitch is when you go from b to c but do not pull the stitches. In this case you double stitch on c so that there is no pulling.
