Fixing curling stockinette
I THOUGHT the curling stockinette "demons" would be appeased in my recent table runner project because I've added a seed stitch border all the way around. Unfortunately, it still curls and I don't want it too.

Should I start over and make the borders wider? Or should I just do a garter st border instead? I wanted to make it look fancier with a 5 st edging on both sides and 8 rows on the ends.

What do you think? What will banish the curling - wider seed st edges or garter st???

Thanks,
knitcindy
