Blocking and seams .

Hi there – i have two questions for you wonderful, brillian knitters…

Project: afghan knitted in panels of varying widths, each 65 inches long.
three panels are completed – enough for a trial on joining seams across panels of differing number of rows.

  1. shall i block first? one panel (“tree of life”) is curling and two (cables) are flat… –

  2. the front facing side of one panel is “knit” side, and the front facing side of another (curling) is “purl” side – any tricks for joining a tidy seam?

thanks –

This site had an edge-to-edge seam that might be good.

If your yarn is blockable, ie, not acrylic, you might want to block them. They’ll relax, flatten and become their ‘true’ size.
