I watched the mini-project video, and after the first row, she mentions that slipping the first stitch in the row so that it gets worked every other row makes for somewhat neater edges. I was wondering if my assumption was right so far as working a pattern goes.
For instance, I'm knitting a scarf where the even numbered rows are p1, k3. So I assume that I'd slip the first stitch onto the right-hand needle, the pick up with the knit and continue the pattern. It makes sense to me, but I second guess myself all the time. Any comments on this are appreciated.
