No matter what you’re quilting, knitting, or crocheting, it can benefit from blocking. This is the process of soaking your project, which likely became wrinkled or out of square during production, to help restore its shape. Any professional will tell you it’s a crucial final step in the process, and this four-piece bundle—mats, blockers, basin, and rinse—will get you started.
Note: This drop includes the Carrie Basin, 9 blocking mats, 1 box of knit blocking pins and 48 mini soak wash packs. At check out, you can choose to purchase only the blocking mats and blocking pins (- $52).
This nine-pack of mats is ideal for flat blocking knitted and crocheted projects. The mats can be used individually for smaller projects or joined together for larger projects.
In order to mark and hold the edges of your project, you’ll need blocker pins. These help ensure the edges are straight. The blockers come in a sturdy box for proper storage, and the pins are extra sharp for precise marking. Set comes with 20 blockers.
This 24-liter basin is the perfect size bucket so soak your project. This fade-, frost-, and UV-resistant bucket is also child- and food-safe, meaning it can be used for a multitude of tasks when your project isn’t soaking.
The final step in blocking is to soak your project. This pack of 48 no-rinse soak packets includes 10 Yuzu, 10 Fig, 10 Celebration, and 10 Lacey soaks, plus 8 Scentless. They’re environmentally friendly and can be used to soak everything from delicate lingerie to chunky sweaters. After the soak, simply lay your project out flat to dry.
