Pattern Question

OK so after looking and looking for a scarf pattern I decided to go with the dragon skin stitch and fern lace (this one is different than most I have seen on line.

But I’m kinda having a duh:doh: monment now… dragon skin is a pattern that done in stockinette stitch so it’s going to curl isn’t it??? I guess I missed that cuz it’s a pattern stitch…

So my question is will the fact that I’m doing increases and decreases to make the pattern make it curl less? The pattern is 12 rows and I’m just going to do it once…

Thanks ladies, I feel silly for missing this part… :rollseyes:

Many lace patterns often have 3-6 garter rows at the beginning and end of the piece and 2-3 sts of it at the edge. It might not roll too bad but you’d probably want to at least start out with garter for the first few rows.

Thanks Sue, that’s what I thought…
