Ruffles in Red Red Red

I just finished Ruffles in red. Well, not quite finished, as I haven't blocked it lightly like the pattern suggests. Mostly because I'm not sure how to go about doing so. So....any blocking advice from others who have finished Ruffles?



It's a Christmas present for my mom-in-law. Hope she likes it. *crosses fingers*

    I didn't really block mine -- just a light wash as someone suggested. Fun! :)

    Thanks for the compliments! I used almost 2 skeins of Plymouth Encore yarn, if you're still wondering.

    Speaking of the yarn I used, it is 75% acrylic and 25% wool. Would blocking the scarf even accomplish anything, since it's mostly acrylic?

    Oh, well, probably can't hurt anything to give it a wash. When you guys say "light wash" do you mean in the actual washing machine? Or should I just give it a quick dip in the sink?
