I'm on my 5th scarf ever
The first 4 I knit only
This one I'm knitting one row, purling one row
and it keeps rolling inward....

Is there any way I can stop that?
Help!
Thanks!
Erica

I have a sewing machine, and I know how to use it

Sounds like you're knitting stockinette, which does curl at the edges. A guy at the yarn shop once told me that you could knit the first few and last few stiches of each row, but I've found that it will still curl, not as much after blocking, but it's not flat. To knit a flat scarf I usually do a 1x1 rib, where I knit one stich and purl the next.

Good luck!
