The slip stitch edge creates little nubs on the edge of your work, one nub for every other row. It’s a sturdy edge that is easy to seam together. It’s also a super easy edge to make, as it is worked the same way on every row.

The slip stitch edge affects the first and last stitch of each row. This means you will either want to change the first and last stitch in your pattern accordingly, or add a stitch on either end of your pattern for the edging.

On the right (front) side rows, slip the first stitch knit wise. This means insert your needle into the first stitch as if you were going to knit it, and then slip it off the left needle.

That’s all it takes. The first stitch of every row is slipped knit wise and the last stitch of every row is knitted. Easy-peasy.
