Tip - Blocking made easy!
Use a towel with a waffle texture for blocking - it gives you a grid to work on and you don't have to keep measuring to make sure it's straight! If you don't have a waffle towel, stripes are also good.
You can either use the towel damp (out of the washing machine after spin cycle) or wet the project and then squeeze out the water (do not wring).
For long scarves I pin along both sides of the scarf on one side of the towel and then I turn the towel over and use the other side for the rest of the scarf.
Once you have pinned the scarf to the towel, you don't need to leave it flat, you can roll it up and leave it to dry.
