I am an Idiot.... - Random babblings of a fiber-obsessed nutcase

the Blossom Chullo says to knit the bottom band flat, in garter stitch. Huh, thought I. I *hate* knitting flat and seaming. I think I'll just do it in the round. So, I CO my 162 stitches, and went about my merry way, *KNITTING* every row.

I am on row 6...and, of course, it's CURLING. :sigh: My question...will it block flat? Can I add something to the bottom to flatten it out (i-cord, maybe?) I *really* don't want to rip my 6 rows of 2-color knitting. :bangs head:

It's KnitPicks Palette yarn (100% Peruvian Wool, if it helps). :sigh:

Thanks....

You've accidentally knit yourself some stockinette -- it's gonna curl. I-cord or a row of single crochet might help. But you won't know that till you block it and see.

No, it will always curl. Even blocked. I'm so sorry.

I would start over, if it was me.
