Check Your Gauge Cloth

$18.00 USD

Part of the Sweater Care Collection

As part of the Knitter’s Block Kit, I wanted to supply a way for users to make sure their knits were blocking to their desired measurements, but there was no way to print accurately and safely onto the Knitter’s Blocks. So I designed a thin cotton cloth, woven to 1" / 2.5cm square gingham. The thread is pre-treated before the fabric is woven to prevent stretching, shrinking, or distortion. Lay it under your knitted item to get straight edges and measurements.

How to Use

Use this cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking to ensure correct measurements. Gingham checks have been woven to 1" squares for use as a two-dimensional ruler.

Lay the cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking. Count the squares horizontally and vertically to ensure correct measurements of your project. Protect knits while steaming by placing the cloth between hand-knits and steamer or iron.
