blocking knit scarf

Hi everyone, I’ve finished knitting a scarf and want to crochet the edge…when should I block it? Before or after the edge is finished?
Thanks so much!!

Blocking is usually done when a project is finished, but it can be done before seaming or edging if it makes it easier for you.

Thanks Jan, that was my first instinct but I thought I should double check. Appreciate the help!!
