Hello crochet friends!

I'm almost done making blanket, but as I lay it out to admire my work... Horror strikes! It looks like my tension became looser as time passed...

I've never made a blanket before, and have read that blocking is a standard step to even out ones work. But... This looks really bad. The bottom right corner is 10cm longer than the top right.

Will blocking save my work and allow me to shape it into a rectangle?

Just want to say that (a) I love the pattern and colors, and (b) it doesn’t look horribly wonky to me. Blocking might improve it, but I don’t think it needs “saving.”

I agree. If this is being made for practical use, no one will ever notice such a subtlety. If it's made to be laid out on top of a bed spread or something very flat, then I could see the concern, but I still think that it would still just appear normal unless viewed from directly above. Imperfections let everyone know it's hand made! Beautiful work!
