I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if any one has any advice to help me solve this problem I am having. I've made a scarf for my dad and it actually turned out well but it refuses to lay flat.
I used a super wash merino wool yarn to create a herringbone knit scarf. I used a pattern found on the PurlSoho website. Typically the pattern is worked side to side until the desired length is achieved but I really wanted the pattern to travel lengthwise. So, I had cast on 500 stitches and then worked the pattern until I reached my desired width. So of course now I have a curly scarf.
I was thinking of trying to wet block the scarf to see if that can tame the edges but I heard that, that may only be a short term fix.
If you have any other ideas I would love to hear them! Thank you! I can try to post a picture later tonight when I get home from work.
