I love the colors of your scarf. What kind of yarn did you use? It looks like you tried to do a selvage edge to combat the rolling . . . sometimes it will roll no matter what you do.

It's merino wool. I just found out thers' a woolfactory nearby. They spin the yarn as thick as you wish and you can also combine different yarns. The yarn is really soft.

Where is this wool factory?  Do they take orders from afar?  That sounds so cool.  The colors in your scarf are really pretty.

Also, in case you were wondering why it rolls, it's because it is knit in stockinette. One of my early projects had the same problem.  If you want to avoid it, try a pattern that is the same front and back (like ribbing or garter) or do a few border stitches on each side.

Thanks for the hints! I'm trying them out with my next scarf, cause i'm using the same yarn(only used 50g for this one)
I'm sorry, but the factory is in Germany. I know they ship across Germany, but I don't know if they ship elsewhere. Here's there homepage:

Oh, well.  Lucky for you, though!  Good luck with your next scarf.

I actually like the rolling. But the seed stitch looks great too.
