Tonight I just finished blocking the washcloths I made. Blocking helps the crochet stitches relax. With crochet, even the most seasoned “hooker” can make 10 squares that are all made with the same yarn and pattern, but they can still end up slightly different sizes! Since blocking relaxes the stitches, it’ll make sure they’re all even. It’s not always necessary, but it does add a nice finished look to most projects.
I can’t wait to take these washcloths off of my blocking mat tomorrow!
PS….the blocking mat is made from a foam pad and wood skewers. 😉
Have a great night! 😁
