I am knitting a scarf and the outside edges are curling in. The pattern
starts and ends every other row with:
(RS) k1, sl 1 purlwise, k1 or k2. ends with sl 1 purlwise, k1.
(WS) p4, ends with p4.
When I sl 1 purlwise I am keeping the yarn in back because the st before and after this sl st is always a knit stitch. Is this correct?
Should the sides be curling in like they are and then I correct it with blocking or could this be the patterns intended design?
Would it help if I just sl the 1st stitch of every row. (RS) knitwise, (WS) purlwise?
Would this keep the sides from curling?
