As part of the Knitter’s Block Kit, I wanted to supply a way for users to make sure their knits were blocking to their desired measurements, but there was no way to print accurately and safely onto the Knitter’s Blocks. So I designed a thin cotton cloth, woven to 1″ / 2.5cm square gingham. The thread is pre-treated before the fabric is woven to prevent stretching, shrinking, or distortion. Lay it under your knitted item to get straight edges and measurements.
- Material: 100% cotton
- Dimensions: 48″ x 48″
- Tested for colorfastness
Use this cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking to ensure correct measurements. Gingham checks have been woven to 1″ squares for use as a two-dimensional ruler.
Lay the cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking. Count the squares horizontally and vertically to ensure correct measurements of your project. Protect knits while steaming by placing the cloth between hand-knits and steamer or iron.
