How do I stop my stocking stitch from curling up?
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 you fix curled edges in 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.
