I am crocheting an afghan and it has gotten narrower than when I first started. Can I block it to make it even?

Hi Carol,

You are crocheting along, row after row, the afghan bunched on your lap. You finally open up the afghan to look at your work only to notice it’s gotten narrower. This happens to beginner and experienced crocheters alike. It is not an uncommon occurrence. Don’t panic. There are a few things you can do.
