I’m knitting a 100% cotton ribbed vest that goes all the way down to my ankles, and I want the ribs to show. However, I’m new to blocking, so I’d like to know these things primarily:
What’s the easiest way to block so that the ribs lie flat? I’ll be doing a lot of it, so I don’t want anything particularly complex.
Will I lose length if it’s ribbed?! I kind of want it to stay at my ankles…
Should I block [I]before[/I] I sew the pieces together, or [I]after[/I]?
Thanks in advance for replies.
