Ends curl in
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Dottie,

It's a nature of St St to curl. You just can't make it lay straight. This is why having some kind of border is helpful. It can be garter st or seed st or lace. Many knitters have asked me this same question before. Here are the links to my previous discussion about curled edges;

Project rolls on the sides

I hope you find the answer helpful.

Thank you for visiting and sending in your question.
