Blocking Cotton
Should I block the pieces of a cotton sweater I'm making? What's the best way to do it?

Thanks!

The writer of this article says that she steam blocks cotton items. If you wet a cotton item completely it will stretch out a lot and lose its shape. The article describes how to steam block.
