Do you need to block Plymouth Encore or other blends?

Hiya…I hope this question isn’t TOO stupid. :pout:

I’m finishing up a scarf made with Plymouth Encore (75% acrylic, 25% wool), and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to block it or not. It’s the proper shape, no matter how I fold it (it’s knit in the round).

If I DO have to block it, do I just get it wet and then pin it in the shape I’ll need it until it dries?

I’ve never had to block anything before, so your help is much appreciated.

You should probably block it, unless it’s garter stitch. If it’s a texture, than you should wet block it.

You can block it if you want, but you don’t need to if it looks the way you want it to. Sometimes with washable yarns all you need is to toss them in the washer and dryer to straighten them out. :wink:

Well, it was knit in the round, so it’s in stockinette stitch.

It WON’T felt, right??? That’s just for 100% wool yarn? I just toss it in the washer? (Sorry if this is stupid, but I’m a fairly new knitter and I’m just now branching out of completely crappy yarn, lol).

I wash and dry my Encore things. Wash on gentle, dry on low. They come out great.
