Why is my knitting curling on the sides?

How do you stop knitting curling at the sides?

The most well known method to prevent curling is by blocking. How do you do that? When you’re finished knitting your project and you’ve bound off your stitches, put your garment into tepid water with a bit of pH neutral soap. Let the wool soak for about 30 minutes, but don’t rub!

How do I uncurl my knitting?

Spray a linen towel or dishcloth with water until it is quite damp, and lay the towel on top of the scarf. Then press the fabric with a steam iron on a high setting (never press directly onto a knitted piece with a hot iron). The heat and steam will stretch the yarn somewhat, relaxing the tension that leads to curling.

How do you make a good edge in knitting?

Slipped stitches add clean edges to your knitting. The easiest and maybe most common one is to add two selvage stitches when casting on. These stitches are then forming a neat chain along the side of your knitting. As the stitch is slipped it stretches out over two rows and this will get rid of any loose stitches.
