Blocked by the Unblocked


The Featherweight Cardigan is off the needles, but needs a serious blocking.

This is posing a challenge for me, as most of my knits have been blocked in pieces then seamed together and with this added lace I really want that to POP.

Any suggestions as to how I should block this piece?

I used blocking wires for the front band. I started at the bottom and slid the stitches on until it curved too much at the neck. I then pinned out the sides and sleeves. If your lace band has points, you can block those out on the wires as you'd normally do on a shawl.
The front bands overlapped in the front of mine, so I had to do some manipulating until I had them pinned out just right.

This might be creepy, but you are just so stylish! That cardigan looks wonderful on you.
