You never want to apply an iron directly to acrylic. Technically acrylic doesn't block but you can try steaming it (hold iron over knitted item) with knit fabric covered with pressing cloth or damp towels. I've had luck with that method as well as pinning afghan squares to blocking board, misting heavily and letting dry thoroughly.
