How to block a shawl when you don’t have a lot of space.

When you don’t have a lot of space for blocking a triangular shawl, here’s a nifty technique worth mentioning.

One of my pattern testers used this technique in blocking her shawl. I found it very interesting and worth passing on to you. With her permission I am sharing her photos as well.

The shawl is folded at the center. Only 2 blocking wires are used, one for the center fold and the other for the top edge.  The points from both sides are pulled down together and pinned. 

Marjos comments that this way of blocking is much quicker since it requires less pinning. However, the only thing that bothers her is that the center fold is noticeable.
