We turn now to the mighty transformative power of blocking!
Just a little bit of well-timed attention can make all the difference in the world.
This month our resourceful and fabulous leader, Jen Arnall-Culliford, takes us on a cowl-blocking odyssey, part of her Confident Knitting series that features a new project paired with a new technique every month.
Blocking with Confidence
Jen demonstrates that you don’t need special equipment to block beautifully.
But equipped with wires and pins, you can achieve even more precise results.
The Design of the Month?
Evolve Cowl showcases designer Hunter Hammersen’s gift for pairing lace with sinuous shaping. Such a juicy project.
Hunter is beloved for her inventive way with accessories and tiny knitted whimsies. Evolve Cowl is the sort of project that blooms when you block it, an excellent project for experimenting with Jen’s blocking techniques.

How to Get in on Confident Knitting
Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford have assembled everything you need to join the fun right here.
And the conversation in the Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Knitalong Hub is never ending and full of help.
(We will have the print book available in September, but we really hope you’ll jump in now and support Jen and Jim. They are a tremendous part of the knitting world, and we admire what they’re up to so much.)
