scarf pattern question
I want to make DH a scarf and have been looking for the right pattern. For reasons that I won't bore you with here :) I want to use a variation of a rib stitch. I really like one I found called basket rib (see link; it's the third stitch down). However, in doing a swatch, I've noticed that it curls in slightly already (I've only done a few inches), I assume because it's partly stockinette.
My question: can I just put a simple 1/2" or so border on the edge of the scarf to get rid of the tendency to curl? I'm thinking a seed stitch or something.
If that won't work I'll look for another stitch (I like farrow rib also and based on what I'm reading for the pattern it doesn't seem like it will curl but I haven't swatched it yet).
Thanks for any suggestions!
