Knitting edge curling

Hi there! I’m knitting a shawl and edging it with 4 rows (top/bottom) garter stitch, 4 knit stitches on each side. I see that it is curling. Any idea what I could do to fix this?
Thank you.

Welcome to the forum!
Usually it’s stockinette or a mostly stockinette background that causes the curl. It’s such a strong tendency to curling that it will flip garter stitch borders on all sides.
Fabulous TechKnitter has a series of 4 tutorials on this problem with some solutions.

Blocking isn’t completely successful but it will help depending on the fiber you’re using for your scarf.
