I finished this jumper a while ago and have finally got round to steam blocking it. Had to improvise a little with the towels!
I think it would be safe to say, I’m not a fan of blocking, next time I think I might add a small rib stitch at the bottom to make it easier!


Your sweater looks very pretty and the towels are a fine way to block. When you’ve put so much time into knitting, it’s worth the extra effort to finish it off right. Blocking evens out the knitting and gives you a more polished look. Good for you for taking the extra care and enjoy wearing the sweater!


Another option to consider is seed stitch. Then it will not pull together the same much as rib, if you want that kind of look.
