Cocoknits Blocking Mats

Blocking is as vital to knitting beautiful sweaters and shawls as casting on, and this blocking mats kit makes it much easier, faster an more enjoyable. If you usually skip this step you'll be amazed at what a difference blocking makes to your projects – blocking is magic!

Julie Wiesenberger, designer, teacher and founder of Cocoknits realised that many knitters in her workshops weren't blocking their finished projects – it was just too much hassle, so she set out to create a set of tools to make blocking easier, faster and more enjoyable. If you too have struggled with wrinkled towels, cumbersome mats, or projects that take forever to dry this blocking kit will change your mind about blocking, and vastly improve your finished projects.

The custom made interlocking mats create a large pinnable surface for blocking shawls or sweater pieces. They can be configured into different shapes to suit your project, and pack neatly away for storage. The mats are topped with a soft, flocked surface which is just a little grabby — smooth your garment pieces out and they'll stay in place without the need for pins. We love the thoughtful inclusion of the gingham cloth, it really does make it simple and convenient to block your project to the measurements given in the pattern.
