Worsted is a yarn weight, what fiber is it? Block only works with wooly type fibers, some wool blends, so it depends.

Actually, I just received a Knitting Daily e-mail that goes over blocking acrylic and "other non-woolly fibers".

The article can be found HERE but I believe you need to register (if you haven't already) to view it.

Sorry to just jump in but I have a similar problem but a slightly different question. My white wool scarf is curling as well and I was planning on adding a green border using a smaller needle but then I thought I could block the white scarf-part first. Should I block then add the green or knit the green border and then block? I'm just worried that the green wool might bleed or maybe the scarf's dimensions will make it hard to knit the green border. Please help. It's for my baby's first Christmas.

Sometimes a curling edge can be a design feature, as on this hat. It's supposed to curl, makes a reverse stockinette `cuff'.

If you look at the pictures closely, you'll see that the edge is rolled up and that the purl side shows. Looking at the pictures on Ravelry, that's how it's meant to be worn.
