First and last sts when working in round

Hi Yvonne,

Interesting. Usually we slip the first stitch (knitwise or purlwise depending on the direction) and then either knit or purl the last st.

I would follow the direction and do what the pattern suggest. It will help make the selvedge looking great.

Thanks for sharing your question with us. Sorry for the late reply. The webhost was down.
