Question - k1 p1 twiiist!

This should be an easy one for you, but I just don't know...

I wanted to practice pearling because I just learned how to knit. I found a video online that showed a very pretty flat side that is made by knitting a row, then pearling a row continuously, so I decided to make a scarf with this technique. Here's the problem:

My scarf is rolling up on the sides. Is there something I could have done (or better yet could do now) to fix this? I was going to try threading the sides to weigh them down, but I don't know how much that'll help. How can I stop my scarf from rolling in on the sides?

Thanks for your help!
