Curling Scarf Help??
Ok, this isn't really a how-to question, but...

I did a scarf, I gave it to my sister. It's my own design and it only has a narrow border. It's very lacy.

Now, it's curling very much, and I wonder how to remedy to this.

Would crocheting a border around it help?

Maybe, did you block it? If it's acrylic, you can 'kill' it by pinning it out and steaming, being careful to put a damp cloth over it and don't touch the iron to it, just hover. Or you can look at this thread and get some ideas...

Yes. A single crochet border will help to prevent curling.
