Will a crocheted edging keep stockinette from curling?
I'm curious about this. I was looking at a pattern for a crocheted baby bib at the Lily Sugar 'n Cream web site, but I prefer the look of knitted items better than crochet... but a crochet edging looks lovely.
If I knitted a bib entirely in stockinette, and did an edging in crochet, would that keep it from curling?
Has anyone ever tried this?
I am very inexperienced with crochet, but I successfully crocheted an edging around a washcloth recently... it was just single crochet.
Crochet on a swatch of stockinette st did flatten it. However, the test was not done on the yarn that I am hoping to flatten when my current project is completed. (Couldn't find my swatch with that yarn.) Here's hoping that it DOES flatten it, since I want the stitches to match the armhole finish used in the instructions. Will let everyone know when I complete the project. A sticky might even be created when the results are in.
Always a beginner...sometimes I even finish.
Every project is a new beginning.
