Curling ends?
Hi! So I am knitting a scarf for my son for the first time and the ends are curled in? How can I fix this without unraveling ?

If you're knitting it in stockinette it WILL curl. It's the nature of the beast. In order to prevent that you need a non curling border like garter or seed stitch. If you want to fix it after the fact you'll have to pick up all the stitches and then do a border. Not sure it will work as well that way. Best thing to do is a swatch and see how it works for you either way.
