Could it have been a crochet edge by chance?

If it's a slipped selvage st you'd slip the first (or last) st of each row knitwise or purlwise...some people opt for one over the other...and work to the end. Frequently used on scarves, afghans, etc to give a nice, clean edge. This is a very common, and easy, technique so if the party didn't know how the piece was done that you were looking at it's hard to know w/o seeing it. Thus, this is just a guess. (There are many other selvage st treatments.)

HTH,
cam

YES, yes!!!! That is exactly what I want....so, do I just knit the row and, when I turn it to start the second row, do I slip the stitch off instead of actually knitting it???
