knitted scarf rolling bad..please help

I just finished knitting my little sister an infinity scarf but the edges are rolling in awfully bad. I knew it was going to roll some, but it pretty much rolls up on each side and the edges touch. It's acrylic yarn, so I don't think I can block it.

Anyone have a tip for adding to the edges to get it to lay flat? Can I pick up stitches and do a seed stitch? I read online a reverse crochet stitched edge might help. Anyone tried that before?

I'm not an expert but I believe you can "kill" acrylic.
