i've looked on craftster for this but i can't seem to find how you do it.....
anyway - i'm doing a pattern scarf that calls for stockinette stitching, it's so long since i've done scarves in stockinette that i'd forgotten that it curled Sad anyway - it is curling and i've heard that adding a garter stitch "border" helps with it... can someone just please explain how/where i add the stitches... thanks Smiley

Knit, knit, knit, knit, knit, knit,

There's very little you can do to stop the curling....If you've already started, you'll need to go back at the end and pick up stitches on the bottom and top and do about 6 or so rows. You'll need to do the same on the sides (but you might find a pretty edging pattern and use that instead).

However, it might be simpler to just pick up stitches on either the bottom or the top, then knit (in either garter or stockinette, but stockinette will line up correctly) from one end of the scarf to the other, making a back panel.

Or, you can try adding a fabric panel (like polar fleece) to stiffen the back.
