Gauge Cloth

Low in store inventory, may be subject to change

As part of the Knitter’s Block Kit, I wanted to supply a way for users to make sure their knits were blocking to their desired measurements, but there was no way to print accurately and safely onto the Knitter’s Blocks. So I designed a thin cotton cloth, woven to 1" / 2.5cm square gingham. The thread is pre-treated before the fabric is woven to prevent stretching, shrinking, or distortion. Lay it under your knitted item to get straight edges and measurements.

Product Details

  • Material: 100% cotton

One cloth

Knitter's Block and T-Pins are sold separately.

How to Use

Use this cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking to ensure correct measurements. Gingham checks have been woven to 1" squares for use as a two-dimensional ruler.

Lay the cloth under or over your hand-knits while blocking. Count the squares horizontally and vertically to ensure correct measurements of your project. Protect knits while steaming by placing the cloth between hand-knits and steamer or iron.
