Good looking scarf! Just out

Good looking scarf!

Just out of curiosity/design aspects - I see from your directions that you put stockinette stitch right at the edges - when I have done this in my experiments, the edges curl badly, so I usually put a stitch or two of garter at the edges, or I slip the first stitch of every row to control the curling. In your picture the edges look fine and not curled - is this yarn stiff enough not to curl? or is it hidden by the 2 stitch cabled rib next to it?

I think it's a combination

I think it's a combination of the fact that it is only one stitch and the thick yarn. Perhaps some tension from the cabled rib is also helping to stabilize it.
