Sweater bottom edge curling
The pattern I am working on calls for a sweater in the round with a curled edge at the bottom. My problem is that it won't stop curling. I have now knit about 6 inches or so and it just curls up to the needles.

Is there something I could have done as I started to allow it curl up once at the bottom but kept it from continuing to curl up?

Also, I am also contemplating how to fix it, since I don't want to rip out (I am working with several balls at once to blend different dye lots of the main color of the body). Could I tack it down somehow? What about folding it over and making a hem, so to speak? Any thoughts on those solutions? I don't want to create a bigger problem
