Hi! I have an oval loom that I've begun a scarf on (I'm new to knitting of any kind). I am knitting the scarf down one side, NOT all the way around. It is curling around every edge. Is there a way I can needle stitch something around the edges to keep it lying flat or anything I can do to make it lie flat? I DO crochet so I was also wondering if maybe I could crochet an edge around it? Thank you in advance!!!!
The fabric the loom is producing is probably stockinette stitch, and the nature of that stitch makes it curl at the edges, especially on a narrow piece like a scarf. Great that you crochet--doing a border will help, but the border will need to be about an inch wide on each side to combat the curling. And be sure and block your scarf with steam or get it totally wet and lay it flat to dry. Hope this helps, Kathleen
