It works on the 6 hour throw because of the multiple strands and huge needles. With just one or two strands and regular needles you need a border. Either garter or seed st, or crochet an edging.

At least an inch worth on the edges, up to 2". And about the same on the ends.

At the top of the page is an entire sticky thread devoted to helping with stockinette curling. Give it a try.
