Steam Blocking

This is a handy technique that I talk about and use all the time! It’s super useful for smoothing out your knitting prior to seaming knitted pieces together.

  1. Hi staci!!! I’m priya. thats was very good video on steam blocking… Does that make sense if ask u to make a video on all the different types of yarn fibres that are available on the market and the best way to block each one of them… or even a text response would do.. thank u. I especially want it for acrylic right nw…

  2. Hi Stacy,
    autumn has its downsides, but fog is great for us knitters: I put my knitting outside overnight and it soaks up the moisture of the nightly or morning fog. I do this with current projects and with finished ones. One can use it as a pre-step just to relax the fibres, then do the steam-blocking where one gets it to the measurements .
    love your videos btw. keep up the good work ^x^

  3. Staci,
    Could you tell me where you got the blocking boards pictured in this video? It’s nice and big and has the grid. I’m having a hard time finding similar ones.


  4. Hi Staci –
    Do you ever steam block acrylic yarn? I have always used natural fibers but I’m wondering if you can block acrylic successfully? If so – how.

  5. Thank you so much for the video on steam blocking. I find all of your video (tips, techniques, and suggestions) extremely helpful.
