1970s crochet lampshade 1970s Tips for Crochet Blocking

Crochet Lampshade from The Complete Book of Crochet

I spent the last two weeks of December down in the Los Angeles area with my brother and sister. That was actually longer than I’d planned to stay but the three of us are almost never all together in one place so it was worth it. We did lots of stuff but there was one day that we really just wanted to chill out so we went to the Santa Monica library and spent the day reading. I know just about every crochet book in my own public library so I was curious to see what they had that was different. What I found was that they have several vintage 1970s crochet books which my library doesn’t carry.

Complete Book of Crochet

One of the books that I found there was The Complete Book Of Crochet 1970s Tips for Crochet Blocking veröffentlicht 1973 durch Londons Octopus Books. Es ist ein Spaß Häkelmuster Buch mit einer Einführung, wie man für Wohnkultur Elemente sowie Geschenke häkeln und dann Muster, Wearables und Kinder’ Sachen.

Was ich am interessantesten fand über dieses Buch, jedoch, war nicht die Muster, sondern ein Abschnitt im Intro, die Ihnen sagt, wie Sie Ihre Häkelarbeiten waschen und wie zu häkeln Leinen montieren. Obwohl es nicht nennen “Sperr”, der Prozess beschreibt es als eine Methode der Blockierung häkeln die in der Regel getan werden sollte, nachdem ein Projekt wird zunächst und jedes Mal, wenn Sie es waschen, so dass die Artikel behält die Form, die Sie es haben wollen. There are several sites with good tips on blocking crochet and this certainly isn’t the definitive guide but I thought what this book had to say was helpful and interesting.

How to Block Crochet

The basic steps of blocking offered in this 1973 crochet book include:

  • Place a piece of plain white paper on top of a clean, flat board. Use the correct measurements to draw out what the correct shape and size of the item is. A ruler, set square and compasses should be used to get the right shapes and angles.
  • Wash the crochet item by hand and leave it damp or half dry.
  • Pin your crochet item on to the paper, using the outline that you’ve drawn to make sure that you’re correctly shaping the item. Pin the general shape down first, leaving things like picots and chain spaces alone. Use rustless pins for this process.
  • Once you have the general shape down, pin the specific parts of the item. Make sure all picots are pulled out to their full shape, all flowers have their petals pinned in the right place, usw.. Pay special attention to make sure that your loops, shells and other shapes are the same size and shape.
  • If you are pinning a filet crochet item then make sure that the spaces and blocks are square with even edges. Use a solution of starch in water to stiffen the item if necessary.
The directions in this book say to remove the item from the paper once it’s dry and press it lightly with a hot iron but these days that will depend on what type of yarn you’ve used.
