2 EASY STEPS TO SLIP STITCH KNITTING EDGES
Step 1 – Slip the Last Stitch as if to Purl
You will knit across the row and your very last stitch is a selvage stitch. You will simply slip that last stitch as if to purl stitch.

Step 2 – Knit with Yarn in Front
When you turn your piece around to knit the next row, you’ll notice that your yarn is in the front. Keeping the yarn in the front, place your right needle into the first stitch and knit it through.
This will create your nice smooth edge. This is a really simple, extra little step. Give it a try and I hope you love it.
