Blocking Techniques with Kira K


After all the hours of knitting or crocheting, seaming, and finishing, there's one last step that people skip all too often. Every project looks better after blocking, from hats to sweaters to lace shawls. In this class, we'll practice both steam blocking and wet blocking on a variety of stitch patterns.

  • Projects ready to block or swatches 4 to 6-inches square in different stitch patterns - find options in your favorite stitch dictionary,  at, at, or swatch for some projects that you’d like to make (Note: Projects and swatches in acrylic yarn are highly discouraged as blocking does not change the properties of acrylic.)
  • Small bowl
  • Terry cloth hand towel
  • Blocking surface (blocking mat, blocks, or clean cardboard)
