100% acrylic yarn
 
I know I have ask this question before but never about 100% acrylic yarn. I am knitting a sweater and as all know this takes a long time. I am using WonderSoft Pearl dk (100% acrylic) a beautiful shimmery yarn. Before I knit any further since my sts are far from perfect
I need to know if when using 100% acrylic yarn will the uneven sts even out when blocked or not!

Still having trouble with uneven sts......have tried everything I can think of to get them even. I have had great success when blocking 100% wool.

Stitches will even out pretty well when you wash and dry acrylic - follow the laundry instructions on the label as to whether you can use the machine and dryer. Even experienced knitters have uneven sts while knitting, and some sort of finishing is what makes it look good.
