curling edges

I am knitting a sweater in a 4 row pattern called "purl ridge" R1-K,R2-P, R3 K1 P1, R4 P. I'm using cotton classic 'mercerized" yarn. The edge is rolling up. I know I can start over and add a few rows of cable or seed stitch to the bottom so it will lay flat, but I wont like the final look of this.

A) Should I hope this flattens out when blocking?
B) Should I start over and just add a few cable rows?

It should flatten with blocking, and maybe when it's seamed too. The purl ridge on R 4 and k1,p1 on row 3 should help. Give it a few inches and see if it behaves better.
