Blocking, sometimes known as dressing or finishing, should be the final step in every project. The process sets the yarn, neatening the stitches and creating the final shape.

  • the tools and equipment you need (and the things its nice to have)

  • why, how and when to block your work.

  • blocking techniques for different types of project including blankets, shawls, hats, socks, sweaters and cardigans.

  • how to use pins, wires, mannequins, bowls and balloons (yes really)

  • quick garment care techniques.


  • How is the class presented?

    The class is presented in a series of short topical videos that are available to watch at anytime, at your own pace and as many times as you like. Videos are transcribed and important points are captioned.
