Spray blocking

Spray blocking is much like wet blocking. (Read the preceding two sections for a few more details.) Just follow these steps:

  1. If you're using blocking wires, thread them along the side edges.
  2. Spread out your knitted piece(s) on your blocking board, wrong-side up for stockinette or right-side up for texture and cables.
  3. Align and measure until you have everything straight and matching your schematic.
  4. Pin the edges every few inches (if you're not using blocking wires), or closer together if you see that the edge is rolling severely between pins.
  5. With a clean spray bottle filled with room-temperature water, spray your piece until it's saturated.
  6. Press gently with your hands to even out the fabric, pinching and molding any three-dimensional details.
  7. Let the sweater dry.

This usually takes a day or two depending on the thickness of the project, general humidity, and so on.

8. When your piece is dry, remove it from the blocking board.
