View Full Version : blocking a sweater to make it smaller?

In someone's expert opinion....would they steam block an angora merino blend if they wanted to try and make a sweater smaller? Or is this a definite NO NO!
I just finished a sweater and the sleeves are too long and wide. Instead of making the sweater the correct size and blocking it to make it bigger, I just made the sweater one size bigger. eeek!
Everything fits just right except for the sleeves....
What would you recommend?

Reknit the sleeves. To my knowledge I don't think you can block an item to make it smaller.
