I have just started making scarves on round knitting looms, but they all seem to curl up!


How can I stop this?

Thanks for any advice, I appreciate it :)

Socks NEW
by: Pam

To keep the edge of socks from curling, make a cuff on them like you would make a brim on a hat. To do this you would knit about 20 rows and bring the cast on row up to the pegs and put them back on the peg. You will now have 2 rows on your pegs. Just knit the bottom row over the top row and continue knitting. This will give the top of your sock a nice look and keep it from rolling down. I just have problems keeping my socks on when I am walking in them. Hope this helps you.

There are a couple of stitches that will allay the curl - one is a purl stitch, and one most used is a Rib Stitch. this is two knit stitches, then 2 purl stitches. the basic erap DOES curl -LOL!
