Knit One Kits top tip: The secret behind getting this scarf looking its best is to 'block' it after you have cast off. Not sure what blocking is details are on the pattern.
What is blocking?
This process relaxes and 'flattens' your knitting. Sometimes it is confused with ironing your work which will permanently flatten your knitting and NOT advised. To block pin your scarf out on a carpeted floor easing it out to its maximum size but taking care not to stretch it. Dampen some tea towels with hot water squeezing out the excess and lay flat on top of your work. Hand press the towels into your work so they make good contact and leave to dry. Once the towels are dry your work will have a much neater appearance.
