scarf issue
Posted by: newbiesara (IP Logged)

I just finished my second scarf and cannot seem to get them to not curve in. They are straight up and down but seem to bend in at the sides, making it like a tube. It is rolling in towards the purl side (knitting and purling). Am I purling tighter than knitting, or do I need to do something when I am done? I ironed the first scarf, but it latest it a couple minutes straight than curled again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
