Finishing

    Blocking is very important in this project because it helps to open up the stitches and accentuate the mock cable pattern.

    Heat up iron so it will steam. Lay out scarf on a folded blanket or other surface that will accept pins. Starting at one end, lightly spray a 10" (25 cm) section with water, hold steam iron about 3" (7.5 cm) above the section and steam. Do not let the iron touch the scarf. Pin section to the dimension desired. Continue in this manner, working down the scarf until the entire length is steamed and pinned. Once the scarf is fully pinned, steam a second time. Let dry completely before removing the pins.
