Weave in all ends. Move onto blocking.

Blocking:

If you are using natural fiber yarn – Soak the finished motif for 10 minutes in cool water and squeeze excess water out gently. Do not twist. Lay damp motif on blocking boards and use blocking pins to hold in place. Let your motif dry completely before unpinning.

If you are using synthetic yarn – You can steam block either with a hand steamer or the steam function of your iron by holding the steamer above your motif for a couple of seconds making sure you don’t touch the yarn otherwise it will burn.
