The only thing that can cause the idle to rise like that is that the engine is getting unmetered air into it from somewhere. That can be a vacuum leak, it can be the throttle plate sticking or the stop adjusted incorrectly or the IAC not working properly. You just have to figure out which it is.
The engine cannot run without air so the air intake is not being controlled the way it should be.
