Ends of work curving up

Q. Aunty:
I am trying to crochet a blanket, single stitch(only stitch I know. The problem is, why is it starting to curve up at the end? The first time I did this, it turn into a beautiful(for first try) hand bag in which my daughter is using for diapers. How can I make it flat at he end? I shapes off round.

A. Hi! Hmmm, it sounds like you're doing one of these 2 things:

1. Crocheting in the very FIRST stitch after you turn your work around and chain one (which would cause you to have an extra stitch on each row you make, or

2. Crocheting more than once in any of your stitches going across (maybe even in your very last stitch). Try counting your stitches each row before you turn your work to start a new row.
