Undo a blocked sweater
How do you undo a blocked sweater? The instructions ask to block all pieces before sewing, it looks horrible! I liked it better before it was blocked.

Hmmm. Maybe soak it again, and "block" it the way it started? Wrinkle it up? Scrunch it?

What do you mean by 'horrible'? Blocking should've sized/shaped the pcs to the specs of the pattern and, usually, helps flatten areas that want to curl, etc.

Do you mean unblock it, unsew it or unknit it?

If you "messed up " the blocking, you should be able to re wet it and do it again.
