Why Wet Block Crochet or Knit Granny Squares?


Crocheting the puff square was an enjoyable process! Picking out the colors, understanding the pattern, sewing the crochet ends. But it looks wonky on the sides. I had originally intended these squares for a pencil case but I know that if kept this way, all the hard work would be in vain.

Blocking is the final touch to your crochet project which will ultimately enhance every stitch and color patterns in your square.
