I am knitting a sundress with Cascade Cotton pima yarn for my great-granddaughter . What is the best way to block it?

I think I would tumble dry it most of the way then lay it out flat, shape as needed or even consider letting it finish on a hanger. How will it be cared for in the future? I'd expect it will just go in the dryer.

Some very innovative ideas have been expressed in the past on this subject. The best way to find some of them is to click on "search" in the top line of subjects at the top of this page (right under the Knitting Paradise title) and check out some of the entries. You will need to differentiate between blocking "in the round" and blocking "round projects."

I agree with GG...just throw in the washer & dry on low till almost dry & shape to pattern measurements...

Thank you, ladies, for your input. I will try the washer/dryer method.

I block my cowls on an ironing board. Just need to keep revolving item carefully and often, and hand shaping it.

I've used a balloon for hats, small baby jumpers that I've made in the round I've washed then whilst still damp I lay on my mats and gently pull into shape and left to air dry....I do use some small cloths hangers for some
