Depends what your making, but usually for a scarf or blanket, you knit the first few rows in garter or seed stitch, then do the border sts at the beg and end of the rows, so it's knit along with it. A sweater usually has the first several rows in rib, garter or other pattern; an edge that won't be seamed may be knit in the border too, or you can pick up sts on that edge and knit a border on which will be sideways to the body of the sweater. Picking up sts on all the edges when finished can be done too on a scarf or blanket.
