she’s right, you have really tight tension. if loosening the stitches doesn’t work, you can try blocking it to make it lie flat

Wetting it with a towel then laying it under heavy things like textbooks is usually what I do to keep things flat

It looks like your tension is too tight, you would have to loosen your tension so it stops curling, if that doesn’t work/not able to, going up a hook size will work

I always try to makenmy tension this tight without curling, and the only way to get rid of it is blocking:/

If its too much tension in the chain, i find optin for a foundation sc/dc/tc etc has much more consistency for me.
