Crochet Pattern: Vintage Daisy Motif
I saw this blanket in a background of a picture in A Beautiful Mess. I fell absolutely in love with the pattern, and searched the web until I found it. It wasn't easy.

My crochet keeps curling. I try to keep the tension the same the whole way bit it still develops a curl. What to do?

It really depends on what kind of fiber you're using.. Blocking does a lot of good. That is, pin it down in what shape you want it to be. If it's made out of wool, you can spray it with water, or very lightly steam it. I'd out a towel on top of it, and just steam it with an iron.
For acrylic fiber, I've come across the same problem, I pinned it, and steamed it a lot, and even used some starch on it, but it didn't seem to work. Be careful, though, too much steam can war and mesh the fibers, and it won't look good.
