Frequent question: Can you fix an uneven crochet blanket?

Why is my crochet blanket wonky?

Crochet blankets can come out slanted, crooked, or warped for a number of reasons. You may have accidentally missed making or added extra stitches into the beginning or the end of a row. Your tension could have changed due to your position, a change in the hook you were using, or a change in yarn color.

Can I cut my crochet blanket in half?

After running a thread through the stitches, you can cut the fabric (note, if you want to save both sides of the fabric from the cut you will need to run a thread on either side of the cut to ensure that neither piece of fabric unravels).

How do I stop my crochet from stretching?

Blocking involves dampening the crochet fabric, stretching it out to shape, pinning it out and allowing it to dry. Always remember to use rust proof pins when blocking to avoid getting orange marks on tour work!

Can you iron a crochet blanket?

The Attic24 method of blocking acrylic crochet blankets is to use a steam iron, moving it over the item that has been pinned in place on an ironing board, with the iron about 3cm above the crocheted fabric. Not closer, because if the iron touches the acrylic yarn, the yarn melts and all your hard work is ruined.

Can you Steek crochet?

There are two methods for this type of steeking : a crochet steek and a hand sewn steek. The crochet steek is suitable for most yarns. If you are using something a bit more slippery like a silky super wash yarn I would suggest the hand sewn steek for a bit more reinforcement.
