Does crocheting around the edges of a punch lace shawl stop the curl?

No, I started one yesterday using the transfer method that makes diagonal stitches on the edge and I did not like the way it looked. So I thought of using the same lace pattern and just crochet around it after.

Crochet does make a big difference in how much it rolls. Sometimes it takes more than one round to really make a difference. But steaming and blocking well will take some roll out, but a border either by crochet or on the machine will help for sure. :)

I have done that. and washing and blocking and then steam works.

Good advice here from others...crochet or machine edge and blocking. If your project is acrylic be very cautious and steam LIGHTLY so you don't kill the yarn. Make sure it's laying flat and allow it to completely dry before moving.

If you are making a shawl, killing acrylic will make a beautiful shawl. It will also lay flat.
