I like to slip the first stitch of every row I work, no matter the pattern, this gives a flatter neater edge. I never add any additional stitches, though, unless slipping the first stitch would somehow mess up a pattern (say for colorwork or for complex lace). I don't think your friend described the process correctly to you though, I don't think you'd have 2 additional stitches at the end if you slipped the first stitch and then worked the pattern, I think you just have one additional stitch on each end.
