Slipped first stitch, but more
I have found that slipping the first stitch can be done a variety of ways
Garter stitch
yarn back, then slip as to purl makes a tight clove-hitch type knot at the edge
slip as to purl THEN yarn back makes a nice neat edge like in stockinette
I felt VERY clever when I figured this out
