I am going to be making a scarf of some design or another, but if I choose to stay with stockinette stitch, I will need to put a border at both ends and the sides to avoid curling. I recently read that someone put an i-cord on the sides but didn't indicate if that would stop the curling. I'm thinking it won't because the tension on the front and back will be different, thus the curling. Has anyone tried this?
Does anyone have any suggestions on something other than a plain garter stitch for a border on all sides? It's a tried and true method to keep things from curling, but I'd like something a bit more interesting for this scarf.
