That's what I was thinking, too, BrendaJo. I just wasn't sure how the ends would do. It does make sense now that you mention it, that having those first few stitches knit on each end would affect it's ability to curl down the sides, though.
I saw a scarf on tv rececntly (Gilmore Girls rerun) that curled in on the sides and I thought it looked really neat. However, upon reflection, I'm thinking now that maybe it wasn't stockinette, but ribbed. Shoot! I wish I could see that episode again! :?eyebrow:
