    Blocking Board

    Versatile and useful, this blocking board has a screen-printed measured grid which allows projects to be blocked evenly. The top layer is covered with a heavy duty denim and is padded with a water resistant lining, while the soft polyester bottom fabric protects any surface from scratches and abrasions. Each layer provides a pin-through surface.

    Read more about these blocking boards on the WEBS Yarns Store blog.

    Note: Blocking Boards are packed 1 to a box and additional items ordered at the same time will be packed in a separate box, which will add extra cost to the shipping charges.

    International customers: Please contact Customer Service for a shipping quote.

    Note: there's a delay from the manufacturer on the next shipment of blocking boards - they estimate having them in towards the end of March.

      This product was recommended to me via Ravelry by Dano656. I'm so glad she did as I love this board. I bought the small one but it look big, thank goodness it fold in half for easy storage! It's very well put together. I've block a Doily so far and looking forward to do all my squares for my Throw.

      I've used this blocking board 3 times so far, and it's worked OK--things stay wet a long time, I guess because of the water-resistant lining? So I had to turn items over multiple times to get them dry. Once dry, they were beautifully blocked.
      My main gripe is paying extra for the measuring grid, which you can see in my picture is illegible. The larger numbers you can figure out, but the smaller numbers (which correspond to the numbers on the opposite edge) are completely useless. Useless! I now think I should have bought the puzzle-piece blocking boards and used a sharpie to make my own grid.
      The thickness of the gridlines is also irregular--in some areas 1/8" thick, in some areas 3/8" thick. Fine, who needs such precise measurements? But I wish it were consistent. It just seems kind of cheap.
      I'm really torn about recommending this product. Yes, you can see the grid. Yes, you can figure out most of the numbers. And perhaps most importantly, it is a sturdy blocking surface. Love that about it. But this is not a cheap product--currently 3x the cost of puzzle-piece boards--and I'm annoyed at having paid extra.

        Comments about Blocking Board:

        This blocking board was a gift for my daughter. She lives in a studio and needed something to lay fabric and patterns on that stored easily.
        I use my board mainly for blocking crochet, but when cutting fabric if I'm called away I can fold the board w/ fabric, etc in it and the cat can't lie down on it (cats always lie down where you don't want them to be!) I love that I can block more than one project at once.

        Was easy to use. I blocked a shawl with a rounded back. Lines made it easy to keep lines straight.

        Arrived more quickly than anticipated. When i placed the order, the product was out of stock but then arrived a few days later.

          Comments about Blocking Board:

          This board works great for blocking knitting. I store it behind a door when not in use, easy to fold up and carry with the attached handles.
          The one-inch grid lines make blocking to size so much easier; no more constant measuring.
          I use blocking wires and T-pins to hold pieces in place; pins insert easily into board.

          Service and delivery comments:

          This item was on backorder for months, but when it became available, actually arrived sooner than expected.

            Comments about Blocking Board:

            This was my first blocking board, recommended by another experienced knitter. Many sites showed this item as unavailable. I got mine from WEBS without delay, and a better price than many others. This is a better board than the thinner smaller pieces, in my opinion. It suits every need. I have seen it transported to knit retreats as well.

              Comments about Blocking Board:

              Blocking on this board helps my sweaters, scarves, blankets, etc. look finished and professional. It's so easy to pin the finished pieces or a knit in the round sweater because of the inch markings on the board. There is no guessing about width or length - you just follow the markings. It's also a good overall size. I wouldn't be without it. I've bought this second one because I've found the first one so useful. I now block everything using this board. It also folds up in the middle to store. Also a great price.

              Service and delivery comments:

              This item was on backorder - customer service assured me that if I ordered it, it would be sent out to me as soon as the shipment arrived. True to their word - I received it even sooner than I expected - delivered right to my door, in perfect condition, and for a reasonable delivery cost.

                This is a sturdy and useful blocking board. Stores easily and lies flat. I should have measured out dimensions - small board holds one side of sweater only. I am blocking a sweater now with one side on top of the other. At least i know the sides will be exactly same size.
