    I’ve just finishes your 6 1/2 hour afgan. I worked the project in the stockinette stitch. The edges are curling in, the afgan will not lay flat.
    What can I do?
    Thank you for your help.

    Zontee says: Hi Jacklyn, stockinette stitch panels often have the tendency of curling at the edges. I would recommend washing your afghan according to the yarn’s care instructions, then laying it flat to dry, either pinning down the edges or weighing down the edges to help flatten it out. Depending on the yarn you used, you can also steam or lightly press with an iron to help with the curling. Hope that helps — for more technical help, you can always e-mail support@lionbrand.com — good luck with your afghan!
