OK, so most of the time when I knit stockinette, it's either in something that will be seamed, or I put a border around it, and no problems.
I knit my husband a scarf in plain stockinette with a seed stitch border. The yarn is a chunky weight 100% wool. I made the stockinette section 24 stitches wide, with 6 stitches of seed stitch on either side.
I wet blocked it, and then tried steam blocking it, and it's STILL curling. I have never run into this problem before when using a seed stitch border. I'm about ready to frog it and just reknit it in another pattern stitch, but I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on why this is happening? Maybe I knit too tight? (I do tend to knit rather tightly.)
