Baby Pullover Sweater, Part 4: Blocking & Finishing

20161104_131527When all the pieces are ready, you will need to block them.  I usually just soak my pieces in cold water, then roll them out with a bath towel.  The towel will get the majority of the water out.

20161104_133109Once the back was set, I placed the front side of my sweater up against the back side so I could get it to fit together just right.  I let them dry this way for about 1 1/2 to 2 days.
