Notes

I like to block my projects, especially when they are made in superwash merino, like this project.

Superwash merino blocks out beautifully every time. It’s made to be machine washable and dryable.

But, for me personally, I like to hand wash and dry flat solely because of its tremendous blocking properties. You can block or not, depending on your preference.

When I block my projects, it’s not really a big ordeal. I don’t use pins usually. Very simple.

Immerse completely in cool water, squeeze gently and roll in a dry towel. Shape on a flat surface and allow to air dry completely.

You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
