How do I make a ribbed scarf lay flat?
I am a fairly new knitter tackling a ribbed scarf project (k4p4). I am using Wool-Ease Worsted Weight 86% Acryclic, 10% Wool, 4% Rayon. The scarf looks great, except I didn't realize that a rib pattern pulls in and curls. I searched all over this site and several others for info on how to get it to lay flat, but I am confused. Is it impossible to get it to lay flat because it is mostly Acrylic? Can I block it when it is done in the ways I read on the sites? If I wash it, will that negate the work I did to get it to lay flat in the first place? I really appreciate your help and am thoroughly enjoying this site since I don't have a lot of knitters around me to discuss these things with! -Megan
