First-time blockers are always amazed by the difference blocking makes to the final appearance of their knitting. After blocking, sweater parts lay flat, stitches even out, and what looked like a hot mess now behaves nicely. It really is knitting magic!
The Cocoknits Knitter's Blocks have a lightly barbed pile that gently grips your knitting without pilling or leaving fibres. The blocks can be assembled in various sizes from a square for sweater pieces, long rectangles for scarves or a triangle for shawls.
The blocks have a thick backing of waterproof EVA and are suitable for use on any surface since moisture won’t seep through. They're also heat resistant, and that's essential if you're going to steam-block your project.
This great kit includes:
- 18 interlocking, fiber-topped EVA foam tiles, each measures 12" × 12".
- 40 stainless steel Cocoknits T-Pins.
- 48" Cocoknits Square Cotton Cloth with 1" square gingham to help measure your finished piece.
- A gorgeous jute bag to contain the kit.
