Absolutely love love love this product. I got the bigger one because I knew I was going to make a massive amount of granny squares. All the pegs are sturdy and long for a lot of squares to be stretched correctly. This is an absolute must!!!!!!! A little down fall is the price. But it’s a buy one and have forever type of investment.
Awesome once you figure it out. Mine only came with half of the instructions, but after watching the video it all made sense. Tips: 1. check to make sure screws are tight each time you use it, they do loosen up at times, 2. only use one of the side arms, not sure why there are two unless it is for balance, and 3. the most important - you may not want to use while your husband watches - they tend to tell you how to do it (too fast, too slow, that yarn is too much). I just keep saying "yes dear" and keep going. I have done a couple 16 oz skeins so far, and although it can be slow and snug at the end, it works!

I’m a knitter who’s new to crochet.
I’m self-taught, so I had no idea that pre-blocking your granny squares was even a thing. For my first blanket, I waited until all the pieces had been joined to wet block the entire blanket. It was backbreaking! I did some research and felt pretty foolish when I saw these blocking boards exist and realized my blanket could have been blocked so much more easily.
I’ve just finished crocheting a second blanket, and it was far easier this time around! The squares were much simpler to join, and the pieces were all so even that I didn’t even have to do a final block on the finished piece!
I can’t stop singing the praises of this blocking board! I just place my squares on the pegs, give it a little spritz of water, and leave them overnight to air dry. I’ve included a photo showing two squares, one pre-blocking and one post-blocking.
