(b) do i slip the last stitch on the other edge, and again, purlwise or knitwise.

i guess i am asking if i should slip the stitch at both sides of the hole, and which way.

I'm making a scarf right now and I'm slipping the first stitch (purlwise) and knitting the last stich of each row. It's making a very nice edge.

For the hole, if the k side is facing you for the first stitch of the hole, I would slip it purlwise. If the p side is facing you for the first st, I would slip it knitwise.

Good luck with it.

I use this pattern for my keyhole scarves. I adjust length to the person I'm making it for child or adult.
