    I found a picture of this shawl way at the bottom of this.

    Wet block, is one way to block an item. Basically, blocking helps the item keep its shape, through wearing and washing. It is easy to do. One method, is to immerse the item in water, such as in a sink. Do not wring dry, but squeeze watee out. Then I wrap mine in a towel, and roll the towel up, which will get more watee out of the item you are blocking. What you will do next, is lay the item out, shape it, then pin it down. I ended up buying blocks that interlock, and can be put together to make the area bigger. Make sure to use pins that won’t rust. (I found my blocks and pins on Amazon, but you can find them in craft stores too.) It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. I furst used a piece of cardboard, after cleaning the surface with a wet cloth. You just want to use a surface that you can pin your item (shawl) to, so something like poster board is too thin. Let it dry, I put mine in a room with ventilation.
    Another method, is to pin the item first, then use a spray bottle of water to dampen the item enough so it is not ringing wet, but damp. Let dry.
    Wet blocking is usually not necessary when using acrylic yarn, as acrylic yarn keeps it shape. For cotton items, I always block it first.

    ** I found almost all questions, ex., how to block, how to make a certain stitch etc., can be found in Pinterest, by searching for it, or searching YouTube.
    I am not associated with this blog or pattern. I too was looking for a picture of this shawl, and thought I might be able to help answer questions.
