Say you've knitted a beautiful shawl with lace patterns, it's finally done and it's like an undefined cloud in your hands.
Take your shawl out of the water carefully and let it drip out excess water in your hands. DO NOT WRING! Lay out with care on a towel and press out the water.
Lay out your shawl on a bed, matras or foam on which you're going to pin the shawl down. Be aware NOT EVER to hold the shawl by the corners or single points. The yarn could snap due to the weight. Support the shawl when you're moving it over a large section.
Kun je maar 1 lus pakken, span dan eerst los op en trek later de shawl 'strak'.
By using the lace stitches, they really lay on top of eachother after blocking. Yarn overs pop open and make the lace come alive.
Dan ziet het er uiteindelijk zo uit. Netjes en niet te strak.In the end it will look like this, not to tight but all stitches are clearly visible.
