The last stitch is always loose
I watched the video on a demo project and it says that to prevent the last stitch from being loose one can just pass the stitch without working it. That doesn't seem to work for me---it's probably something very basic, I can't seem to get around to it and it creates a really ugly border.

I've always heard slip the "first" stitch of each row. Try pulling the last stitch a little tighter and slip the first stitch and see if that helps.

I also ussually just slip the first stitch. OSmetimes working it through the back loop can also help keep it tighter
