Hi and welcome to KH. It helps if we know what you're making and if you can link to the pattern, that's even better. I looks like you want to work the 1st stitch, work your decrease, continue to the last 3 stitches, work your decrease, work the last stitch. By working your decrease in a stitch from the edge you'll get a much nicer looking edge and if you need to seam it or pick up stitches it's much, much easier. HTH

This is the only place I've found for asking knitting questions. Come back and ask anything, any time. There are great knitters here who helped me learn things like working an increase or decrease a stitch or two from the edge. If you'd like to post a photo of your finished basket, please do. We :heart: pictures.
