Okay, so I've been practicing "field stitches". You know, the background pattern stitches like seed stitch, moss stitch, double moss stitch, basket stitch etc. and I've had the edges lookin' kind a funky. So, I had read on here where several of you suggested just transferring your first stitch onto your right needle without working it so that each end stitch only gets worked every other row. Well, here's where my question comes in, when doing these pattern stitches and it gives specifics of what to do with that first stitch, what do you do to keep those end stitches from lookin' weird? I mean do you go ahead and transfer the stitch? Do you add an extra stitch on each end and then use it to keep your edges looking neat? Transferring the stitch didn't seem to make a difference with stockinette stitch, but I'm concerned that it could mess with the look of say ribbing and these other pattern stitches. So what's the trick to having nice looking edges and keeping the stitch pattern?
