Does blocking help seaming?

I made a magic ball sweater that needs some seaming. It’s mostly made of Encore worsted. I would think it would be easier to seam if it’s been blocked, but I’ve never blocked before. Help!

Since Encore is mostly acrylic, I don’t know how much good blocking is going to do. Any curling will be taken care of with the seaming. You can wash and lay them out, or lay them out under a wet towel until dry, though, if you think it will make seaming easier.

Okay. That make sense. I’d forgotten that it’s mainly acrylic :rollseyes: not wool. It’s going to be a pain to seam no matter how I do it so… Maybe I’ll try flattening it a bit first at least. Thanks Ingrid. :heart:
