Stockinette Curling

I made my first scarf all in stockinette and the sides are all curling in on themselves. Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

That's what stockinette does. The fix is usually to border it with garter stitch or some other stitch that tends to hold it flat.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
