I wouldn't write it in such a complicated way. Instead, use

def chunk(block):
   return hex(len(block)).encode('ascii') + b'\r\n' + block + b'\r\n'

This doesn't need any format call, and describes adequatly how the
protocol works: send an ASCII-encoded hex length, send CRLF, send
the block, then send another CRLF. Of course, I would probably write
that into the socket right away, rather than copying it into a different
bytes object first.
