How to Block a Knit or Crochet Shawl with Kristin Omdahl Yarns

#1 Fingering Weight Yarn

Be So Fine Yarn

Blocking a shawl is universal, whether you love to knit or crochet them first.
Delicate and luxurious fibers deserve a delicate wash. I relate it to shampoo for my hair. I wouldn’t use harsh chemicals on my hair, so why should I use them on the fibers of my yarn?

Watch the video below to learn some of my tips and tricks on blocking! Pinning at the midpionts is KEY!

This shawl is a new one-skein knitting pattern that will be released next week. Stay tuned for the pattern, the yarn kit, the tutorial video and a giveaway contest upon release!
