edge sts using slip st and knit st on every row
QuestionWorking on a moss stitch border, the pattern says to do an edge stitch beginning and ending each row. Not sure what that is/:-AnswerHi Julie,The edge stitches are stitch manipulated at the beginning and the end of a row to keep your work's edges look nice and neat. You can do this by slip the first st (purlwise) and knit the last st. of every row. There are many different techniques you can watch on you tube. Here are some examples I found;This one is my video I made on "purse stitch" which I also showed how to do the neat border with slip and knit st mentioned above.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4J1x1mdbNo&list=UUvGGCSq9yvDG6zessFXqX-QThis one called "English Slip Stitch Selvedge Edge" and the sample piece is in a moss st as well. http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-knit-the-english-slip-stitch-selvedge-edge/Hope this helps and happy knitting!Ratcha
