I am new to all this l decided to take up a new hobby… and here l am!
I have finished my first scarf in stockinette stitch in 2 diiferent colours which looks ok for a starter, but l didn’t realise that it would curl up like this until l got on the forum!!! :frowning: I would like to make my sister a scarf that is the similar pattern that DOESN’T curl up any ideas people. I have tried knit 2 purl to and it looks nothing like it!!

Can someone please help me

Many Thanks


You need to put an edge on stockinette so it doesn’t curl up. Welcome!

Susan, welcome!

WELCOME! Unfortunately, your sister’s scarf isn’t going to be alllll stockinet stitch, unless you’re ok with it curling. You may just want to knit the first and last 5 stitches of every row and knit the first and last 5 rows.

If you wanted to be adventurous yet still keep it all stockinette you could knit a tube and then sew the ends together. The adventurous part would be knitting in the round.
