Adjustable Mini-Blocker for 4", 4 1/2", and 5" Granny and Afghan Squares from CHETNANIGANS

Chetnanigans Introduces the "Adjustable Mini Blocker" for 4", 4 1/2" or 5" Squares


Chetnanigans offers several different blockers to assist our customers in producing and presenting the very best work available when using square-constructed afghans and other items. However, prior to this introduction, the options were for a 3" - 8" adjustable, or our full sized 12" blocker. We've had several requests from customers for a blocker that would accommodate 4" - 5" squares, hence our introduction!

The Mini-Blocker is produced in either Red Oak or Poplar Hardwood. It is a 6" square with 56 holes around the perimeter. The 5" square and the 4 1/2" square both have 20 holes to block your square, while the 4" has 16. Both the 5" and 4" squares have their holes 1" apart while the 4 1/2" Mini-Blocker is spaced at 7/8".

Your purchase includes 20 pins for blocking and the holes are felt covered in the back to prevent your pins from falling through or scratching your work surface. Both versions are polyurethane coated to assure that no water will "leak" into the board while blocking.

Chetnanigans has transitioned to stainless steel pins for all of our blocking boards! They are stronger than our original design, and are still 55% smaller than the 1/4" dowels that many of our competitors use! Finally they has a beautifully rounded end so that it won't snag on your yarn, and fits into, and out of the holes perfectly!

As with all of our offerings, this product can be painted in a variety of colors to accommodate our customer's personalized taste (see "Custom Finishes for Workstations / ScrapMates" to select your final finish; available in Black, White Pink or Natural finishes).

Please know that we appreciate your business and support of our shop! We've had a great success in a short period of time and its all due to the support that we've received from our Esty Buyers, so please accept our sincere appreciation of your support of Chetnanigans!

I just received my mini blocker yesterday and I'm so excited to use it. I am new with crocheting and am attempting my first granny square blanket and thought this would be perfect to use. Sean was really nice to answer my questions before I ordered and even to explain the pins and sizes to me. This piece is solid and sealed and the back has felt to protect surfaces and to keep it from slipping around my table! I know I will be coming back to their shop for more!

I love this blocker. It works like a charm for all of my granny squares. It is smooth so my squares won't catch and have to redo them. That makes me happy. Looks good too
