New to knitting so I'm not sure if this is normal. But I've made two scarves but the ends and sides curl. Is this normal? How do I fix it so they actually look like scarves and not tubes? Thanks!

I think you're wanting this thread...

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

I'm assuming you are knitting in stockinette (knit one row, purl one row)? If so, then you definitely want to look at the thread Zina is pointing you to. If not, then it might just be an issue of getting your tension even, which takes practice.
If at first you don't it and try again!
