Slipping a stitch
I'm working on "Amanda's Squatty Sidekick" bag, and I'm not sure I understand this:

Quote:
CO 5 sts. Working back and forth in rows, work 60
rows in St st, slipping the first st of each row kwise
(see Note)— 5 sts on the needle, with 30 slipped sts
forming a “chain” edge along each side of piece.
Quote:
Note: When working back and forth in rows in Stockinette
stitch (knit right-side rows, purl wrong-side rows), slip
the first stitch of each row knitwise. This will form a neat,
“chain” edge.
I get how to slip the stitch (putting my right needle into the stitch as if to knit, and slipping the stitch off the left needle onto the right... right?). Am I then, just slipping the stitch, and that's it? I'm not knitting (or purling) the stitch at all?

Yes, it's just slipping the stitch~ no knitting or purling to it. It will form a nice edge.

Correct. All you do is slip the first stitch of each row in a knitwise pattern. Then continue working the row.
