Learn to Block Knit and Crochet Projects
Learn how to block knit and crochet projects! Sponsored by Knitting with Chopsticks, this free one-hour class is a fantastic introduction to an often overlooked yet polished and professional fiber technique.
From the Instructor:
Most patterns finish with: “Carefully block your project”.
Have you ever wondered what that last sentence means? Or have you been like me for years and just ignored it and enjoyed your project as soon as the last end is woven in (or even before that)?
Although a simple process, blocking is often overlooked by new crocheters and knitters. Trust me, I get it, I’ve skipped over it for years until I finally took the time to do it and see the difference for myself. It doesn’t require a lot of materials or time but can make a huge difference in how polished and professional your handmade items look.
In this course, I’m going to answer all your questions about blocking.
•What is blocking?
•Why should you block your knitting and crochet projects?
•What tools do you need for blocking?
•3 different methods for blocking as well as the pros and cons of each one so you have all the tools in hand to block your next project effortlessly.
•FAQ + your questions!
No materials are needed to participate to the class.
