If you are knitting your blanket using the stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl the next; repeat) your fabric WILL curl. Stockinette work needs an edge to avoid curling - a few stitches of garter or seed stitch will usually help. For additional information, search this site for "curling" or similar - you will get lots of discussion and information on the subject.
