How to Block a Knit Lace Scarf. Knitting and Crochet Blog week

Author: Jacqueline

As part of the Knitting and Crochet blog week, they’ve encouraged us to try something a little different for April Fools.


Today’s assignment was to make a posting on our blog that was different from our typical day to day content. We’ve often had customers ask us for tips on how to block their finished projects, so we’ve decided to make a video to show the process of blocking a lace scarf. We’re new to this world of video so if you have some tips and tricks for beginners, please share!

    Thank you so much that was really easy to follow and answers a lot of my questions

    I have knit several scarfs that curl in on the edges. I’ve tried every blocking method that I know of–steaming, misting, soaking in water. Will Soak relax the fibers enough to keep the edges flat?

      Hello,
      It also depends on the stitch you use. Sometimes, blocking with Soak does work, and over time (weraing your favorite scarf lots), the edges do start to curl again. Fortunately, the scarf is also picking up oils from your skin, and dirt from life in general, so you can re-block it with Soak and it will be flat again.
      Cheers and thanks! -j.
