Curly Edges- Help!
Hi everyone,

After a one year hiatus I have become readdicted to knitting. One thing I have never learned to do is to prevent the edges of my kniting from curling up. Does anyone know how to prevent this? Is it because my stitches are too tight? Help!

do you mean it's curling when you do normal garter stitch (or any stitch for that matter), or is it curling with stockinette? If the answer is the latter, then you should have a look at the sticky topic at the top of this forum - Is your stockinette curling?

Stockinette always curls, it's the nature of the beast. To find some helpful hints check the sticky post at the top of the forum.
