This time I again needed a little bit more than 1 hour for 1 square! (We have had a holiday yesterday here in Germany!) I have knitted my squares using 4mm needles as usual to get the correct tension.

Remember to check out these washing and blocking instructions from Rowan:

Hi All, as your pile of Pure Wool Worsted squares are building up, here are some tips to ensure they’re ready for making up: 
We recommend an initial wash of each square, for blocking into shape. This will also remove excess dye. 
Remove excess water by rolling in a towel, and pin into shape (20cm x 20cm). 
Dry the squares flat and in the shade. When the squares dry, they should all be an even shape, ready for making up. 
This process is called blocking, and will mean the squares are a consistent shape for making up, and won’t run or bleed into the other shades when machine washing in the future. 
Any further issues, please contact
