I’m knitting Clapotis now, and notice that the sides do not curl. Why is this? Is it because it’s on the bias or something?
You’re just THAT good!

You know, I had that once too on a different pattern. It was the easy v-neck pullover from www.glampyreknits.com . It’s a top down raglan with kfb increases on every right side row at both neck edges. The neck edges did not curl, however the back of the neck did. :shrug: Who knows why, but it was sure a treat!
Ingrid and Angelia, you guys are silly. :teehee: I can just see myself at the next SnB “oh yeah? well I’m so good, my stockinette doesn’t curl!”
Knitqueen, this pattern also has a kfb every other row. In the increase sections, it began every row with either kfb or pfb, and now that we’re in the straight sections, RS rows begin with 1 purl and end with kfb, and WS rows begin with sl1 and end with p2tog. I wonder what the critical elements are to keep it from curling. :?? Like with your pullover, there is a part that curls, and that’s the very botton part. It curls up like normal stockinette. But the edges don’t curl at all. Veeeery interesting.
Good, thick yarn? I had a blanket done in stockinette that didn’t curl once because it was a thick yarn. Maybe that’s the case? :shrug:
No, it’s because of the pattern. However, when the stitches are dropped it will curl some on the edges, but it’s supposed to.
