I am making a scarf for my 12 yr old with LB Wool Ease thick and quick. I am doing it in st st but the edges are curling in. Is there a way to make it stop? :??
Here it is if I lay it out flat
and here it is if I don't force it flat
Read this thread. It's a sticky for a reason... LOTS of people have this problem.
No. Stocking Stitch will curl. Every time.
There is a technique called twisted knitting, where you use two strands alternately to create a single piece of fabric. It will be more dense, but it may reduce curling in a plain ST ST.
Oh duh thanks sweetie. I figured it had been asked before... I should have dug some more.
I just read this article http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/FEATdiyknitter.html
and that gives me a little hope I guess. Once it is done I will try what she suggests.
