Finishing & Blocking Your on the Bias Shawl

Fasten off and weave in all ends. Next, block your crochet shawl pattern.

Remember that blocking is key to enhancing the drape and overall presentation of your fingering weight yarn. Take the time to carefully block your Bias Suzette Shawl, ensuring the stitches open up beautifully and the intricate details shine through. This is an important step to getting the best look out of your hard work. You wouldn’t wear wrinkly pants to a nice event so don’t leave your crochet shawl patterns unblocked. When dealing with delicate yarn like fingering weight, consider mist blocking for a gentle touch.

I took a close up picture of the stitches pre-blocked & blocked, just notice the difference!
Blocking opens up those stitches and gives the shawl a better drape.

Additionally, for the longevity of your crochet wrap, follow the best washing practices. Handwashing with a mild detergent and laying it flat to dry is ideal, preserving both the vibrant colors and the intricate stitches. With these blocking tips and proper care, your Bias Suzette Shawl will not only be a stunning accessory but also a lasting testament to your crochet artistry.
