Most knitting patterns will finish up by saying block to measurements. But what does that mean? And should you steam block? Wet block? What about blocking lace versus blocking cables, or texture, or stockinette? Should you block before seaming or after? We’ll talk about different options for different fiber, garment, and fabric types, and then get some hands-on experience with blocking different swatches and some finished items.
Materials and homework:
Students will be provided with a pattern for a lace swatch prior to class. Please bring that, worked in any yarn, and any project that you’d like to block. We’ll talk about your options!
