Curl on the edge

I was working on a lapghan and removed it from the loom. I don't like the way the ends are curling up. Anyone have a suggestion of what to do to make it look more finished?

curling edge/finish handle NEW
by: Jen Tavernier

Hi! There is a way to loom it with a rib knit around the edges, that will stop the curling 0 general a few rows of 2 knit, 2 purl. However, I haven't spent a lot of time with this, (looks very cool) - but I am lazy and like to actually finish pieces where applicable, with a couple of rounds of single crochet. Just remember to add in extra stitches to accommodate the slight extra circumference or the curves.

Another REALLY great link is Kristen's vid channel, below, and ANY of the groups (interactive) listed. I will say that Kristen, (Good knit Kisses) (Vid and group) are mammoth when it comes to al the stitches, ways to cast on and off to handle troublesome problem, just amazing.
