I’m knitting a triangular shawl (very basic pattern, can be found almost anywhere - it’s a variation on the dishcloth pattern with k2, yo, knit across). I’m using Red Heart Symphony, double stranded, and it is working up really well and is very pretty. My problem? The “V” point at the bottom wants to fold or curl under. It’s almost like it needs a weight of some sort put down there. I can take the tail of the cast on yarn and gently pull it, and it goes into a perfect “V” with no curling at all. Other wise it looks more like a “V” where someone has flattened the bottom of the point.
Is this kind of problematic with triangular shawls? What do you do to keep the point from curling or folding (whichever way you want to describe it)? I wasn’t planning on adding fringe as the shawl looks fine without it and I’m afraid with the mohair-type yarn the fringe would end up looking ratty.
