The most well known method to prevent curling is by blocking. How do you do that? When you’re finished knitting your project and you’ve bound off your stitches, put your garment into tepid water with a bit of pH neutral soap. Let the wool soak for about 30 minutes, but don’t rub!

The heat and steam will stretch the yarn somewhat, relaxing the tension that leads to curling.
