So i just knitted a nice chullo hat in acryllic Lionbrand Mohair like yarn in Apple green and an off white. I would just like to know how would I go about blocking such item? I have never blocked anything before because it's all been acryllic. So should I block it or just throw it in the washer and not worry. Because that's usually that's what I do with all my store bought acryllic knitwear and they turn out fine with no shrinking. Ok, just wanted to see what some more experienced knitters thought.
