Hi!
if the edges (bottom and sides) are stochinette, they will curl. If you do not like that, you can give them a border while you knit ( garter stitch, seed stitch, some ribbing....) and so on. If you have already knit a good bit and do not want to start over... try a crochet border around the scarf after you are done.
Or pick up stitches around all edges and knit a garter or ribbing edge or the like.

Blocking on acrylic is not the most efficient, mostly. And do not do it too hot as you may "burn" the fiber.
