Baby Blanket edge/finish
Hi, I'm just making a baby blanket using 8ply. It will be fairly plain as I'm a beginner so was just going to knit every row. But I'm wondering if there is an EASY way to have a neat edging/finish all the way around? I can do perl but nothing to much as it's time consuming and I need to knit this fast. Did I read somewhere you finish the last stitch with perl? Or you 'slip' the first and last stitches? Does slip just mean you dont knit them, you just put it across to the other needle? And that's just the sides but what about the caston and off edges?

Also is there a way to be a little creative in the knitting pattern/style of the blanket without it being to complicated for me? Very beginner with not a huge amount of patience so needs to be easy.

Many thanks,
