How to block a hat after knitting
- First of all, gently wash your hat. This makes it wet (obviously) but seeing as I was in this case making a baby hat, I like to give them a wash before gifting them.
- Gently squeeze out most of the water, try not to be too rough or you might stretch or alter the shape of the item.
- Hold the hat open, place a balloon in the opening, and begin to inflate.
- Do not fully inflate. Blow the balloon up to the point where the hat is sitting on it completely open, but without being stretched too much.
- Allow to dry.
- Remove hat from balloon.
So there you have it, how to block a hat after knitting. How do you do it?
