The web site below gives a picture tutorial on how to prevent the curl.
I have made my first attempt at it, and my stitches are kind of long in one area, but this particular step is only needed for the first 1 or 2 rows of an afghan stitch project.
I am practicing on a wash/dishcloth. I hope to get better with practice.
I have wondered for YEARS how to prevent that curling.
If you go to this site to use these instructions, pay attention to the area where she instructs you where to place/hang your thread for the purl row.
That's what prevents the curl.

Then I am going to sc around the whole cloth.
