Blocking knits

Thought I’d share my latest crochet project because it involved a new step for me. This is the first project I’ve made that required the shaping and blocking step.

This scarf was blocked in segments because I didn’t have a piece of cardboard large enough to accommodate it’s length. Since this piece has a lot of open space it needed the extra shaping that blocking provides to give it a finished look by removing the ripply, uneven effect.
It’s really quite simple, pin the item into the desired shape onto a piece of cardboard and thoroughly moisten the yarn with a spray water bottle. You can also wet the piece before pinning but I found it much easier to do after. Allow it to dry, remove the pins and you are left with a nicely shaped knitted garment.
