Edging

Loosely sl st around the whole outer edge of your wrap to neaten up the edges, finish off and weave in any ends with your yarn needle.

Finishing

Block piece to measurements in preferred method.
To steam block, pin the wrap evenly on a flat surface. Set your steam iron (or hand held steamer) on the lowest setting that will produce steam. Once you have a good steam going, hold the iron or steamer close to the crochet and work in a circular motion over the entire piece until every inch is evenly dampened. DO NOT touch the iron on the yarn! If you find that you must lightly press, cover it with a cloth first to protect the yarn from the hot metal plate. Allow the pieces to dry thoroughly before unpinning. yarn ball
