I downloaded this pattern from a website, but from everything I understand about stockinette for shawls/scarves, it curls. Can anyone figure out if this pattern will curl and how? Or will it really be a proper shawl?
Thanks in advance.
18 stitches and 24 rows per 4 inches (4.5 stitches and 6 rows per inch) in Stockinette Stitch. Gauge is not critical.
Finished wrap is 40 inches wide at the bound off edge and 33 inches long, excluding the fringe.
[lo]Cast on 3 stitches.
Purl one row.
Knit the next row, increasing by knitting into the front and back of the first and last stitch.
Purl the next row.
Continue in this manner, increasing on knit rows and working straight on purl rows, until piece measures about 40 inches wide.
Bind off, cut yarn, weave in ends. You should have one ball of yarn left.
Cut the remaining yarn into 6-inch pieces and use it to make fringe around the sides (not the top edge) of the shawl.
