Question: How do you loosen a crochet hat?

Can you stretch crochet hats?

If you finish a crochet project and find that the stitches are too tight, never fear. You can stretch them by blocking your work. Wet-blocking is a method of relaxing stitches by wetting them and pinning them into shape. Wet yarn is much more malleable than dry yarn, and certain fibers will stretch more than others.

The General Blocking Process

Here’s how wet-blocking works: You either soak the beanie in a bowl of water until it’s saturated, then press the excess water out on a towel and pin it into the desired shape and size; or you stretch the beanie and pin it down first; then saturate it thoroughly with a spray bottle.

Blocking reshapes an item and redistributes the stitches so that they sit evenly. It doesn’t stretch a garment or make up for lost stitches, but blocking can help flatten out strange curls and lumps that developed while you were knitting.
