I am working on the Tasha Bag http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTtasha.html, I am ready to start the loose five rib cable braid. The instructions call for a selvedge stitch for the first and last stitches. Is there a specific 'selvedge' stitch, or is it just a knit stitch? I found something on selvedge stitches that said you can "slip the first stitch of each row and knit the last stitch of each row" for a braided edge. Would this be appropriate to use here, and would it be considered the 'selvedge stitch' the pattern calls for?
