Hello everyone, I'm a new knitter and would like to know, on decreasing the first stitch whether its knit or Purl row do you leave the first stitch alone and just knit or purl that one stitch, or start the decreasing in that stitch. the reason being is i don't want the edge to be ruin t. So I can join it together later. PLease try and help if you can.

You can increase or decrease on the 2nd st in from the edge; many people do it that way to make seaming easier for them.
