Cocoknit's Blocking Fabric
Cocoknits' Julie Weisenberger wanted to supply a way for users to make sure their knits were blocking to their desired measurements, but there was no way to print accurately and safely onto the Knitter’s Blocks. So she designed a thin cotton cloth, woven to 1" / 2.5cm square gingham. The thread is pre-treated before the fabric is woven to prevent stretching, shrinking, or distortion. Lay it under your knitted item to get straight edges and measurements.
Use this cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking to ensure correct measurements. Gingham checks have been woven to 1" squares for use as a two-dimensional ruler. Lay the cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking. Count the squares horizontally and vertically to ensure correct measurements of your project. Protect knits while steaming by placing the cloth between hand-knits and steamer or iron.
Material: 100% cotton. Dimensions: 122 cm x 122 cm.
Care: Hand wash in cold water. Hang dry.
To be used with the CocoKnits T-pins.
