Crochet Border Q
I am almost done with the Feather and Fan Afghan for my pregnant co-worker. The CO edge has curled a bit (up to the 2nd or 3rd row). After I bind off, I want to do a crochet border to neaten up the edges. I was wondering if this will take care of the curling as well. If so, how many rounds do I need to take away the curling? I was going to do single crochet around once, but should I do it twice or even three times?

Any ideas?

Much thanks as always!

If you want a crochet edging by all means do it.

But if you're just out to stop the curl try blocking. Crochet also has a definite curl to it.
