How to block a garment?
I am almost ready to block my sweater dress a.k.a long sweater but not sure how or if I have to but I'm pretty sure I do.

For sure I want to block it because my tension is not consistent so my stitches are not nice and even.

It is knitted with 100% premium acrylic yarn.

Here is the link to my other thread:

Thanks in advance!

Since it's acrylic you could gently machine wash and dry it. Or machine wash, roll in a towel and then lay flat to size. I generally machine wash and dry all my acrylics.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
