I’ve recently knit a hat in the round, i.e. no seeming involved (whoo!). There’s a lovely lace pattern in it, and I’d like to pin the lace while blocking to open it up. I’m not sure how to do this, since I can’t pin the whole thing flat.
a) Does anyone have tips for blocking round items, in general?
b) Do I have to do anything special with the lace?
