Is there a way to keep my knitting from curling? I'm doing the flatedge thing and for some indiscernable reason it just isn't working with his yarn. Can anyone help?

I'd have sworn on a stack of pattern books I answered this one this morning, but obviously not.

When I was making an afghan using afghan stitch (which always curls unless you do the first row in purls) and had the curling problem, I rolled it up in the other direction - against the curl - then pinned it with one of those big stitch holders. Seemed to work fine.
