Why do the edges of my knitted scarf curl?
The reason it curls has to do with the very structure of the stitches. When you’re working a pattern that has knits and purls on both sides, this difference in stitch size doesn’t matter, but when you’re working in stockinette stitch, where all the knit stitches are on one side of the work, the knitting tends to curl.
Should I weave in ends before blocking?
Step 2: Weave in your ends! Blocking will help all those little loose ends get secured in place, and also will help “set the stitches” you weave the ends into, so they don’t look quite as bumpy as you think they will.
What does weave in ends mean in knitting?

How do you weave in ends in double knitting?
To secure the ends of a yarn change while double knitting, tie the ends together (gasp! yes, tie them together) in a sturdy knot, right at the base of a knit stitch. You’re usually told not to tie yarn ends because knots are visible on the wrong side and can often be felt through the garment.
