Blocking a Curl is actually good fun. It’s quick and relatively easy. Use of one wire is helpful.
Next, pin out the long curved edge. I find it useful to put a few pins in the top edge to help me get some tension. These I then remove as I go, so that the short edge tensions itself and guides the shaping.
I blocked this Curl quite hard, having several iterations until I achieved a pleasing shape and a smooth (ish) edge.
Not sure if this version ought to have had a peaked edge or not, but mine does not – it is as smooth an edge as I had the patience to fashion.
The photos lack a little something (light mainly, it’s a dull day). I had a Prime lens on and this really needed a wider angle, I could not capture the whole Curl in one shot. I tried… I stood on the kitchen kick stool
I’ll swap to the zoom lens before unpinning tomorrow and see if I can do better.
Heads up: this Curl is available for grabs. I won the yarn on Ravelry for a Knitalong shawl that I made. I said at the time that I would probably pay it forward once I had knitted the skein. So if you fancy your own Pavonated (Curl pattern by Hunter Hammersen/Pantsville Press) in Hipknits 100% Merino Sock Yarn, make your claim now. P/hopping is nice but there are no strings attached and this one may be had gratis.
Tomorrow will be the turn of the Ruffled Fichu, I think.
