I’ve noticed a few folks mention problems with it curling. The seed stitch border can only do so much to prevent this. The yarn for the sample was a two-ply hand-spun alpaca, which has very little resiliency. A tightly-spun sock yarn will tend to behave differently.

If you used a yarn that can take it, try steam blocking. This often helps bully a wool yarn into submission.
