An "edge stitch" is created by "knitting" the first and last stitch of every row, both WS's and RS's.

There are diff ways to create an edge stitch I guess (from Googling the words), but I learned the edge stitch from Elsebeth Lavold, the Swedish "Viking Knits" designer.

I used to put a stitch marker 1 stitch in from each end to remind me to "K" the stitch, coming and going!

It really makes for easier mattress seaming, and of course, blocking with wires!

Thanks for your kind words and compliments!
