To Iron Or Not To Iron
I am knitting a baby bunting using a pattern and instructions that are about 18 years old. I could not find the exact yarn recommended in the instructions, so a friend helped me choose an alternate, which ended up being Caron Simply Soft (100% acrylic).
Pattern directions say to press the pieces (back, left front, right front, sleeves, hood) before assembling. The Caron yarn band has the "Do Not Iron" symbol. The pattern is described as having "hexagonal shapes" or a "honeycomb" effect, if that makes any difference to your advice.
What would you do?
