Using the flat edge on the sides of your knit creations helps prevent curling and gives a nice, straight line to your knitting. It’s designed to be used with stockinette stitch, though it looks nice on the other stitches I’ve tried it with. In the sample in this post you can see how it looks when worked on stockinette stitch and garter stitch.

The flat edge affects the second and second to last stitches of each row. This means you will either want to change these two stitches in your pattern accordingly, or add a two stitches on either end of your pattern for the edging.

On right (front) side rows, work the first stitch as normal.

When I tried working this edge with other stitch patterns I worked as follows:
Right side rows: K1, p1, work as normal until 2 sts remain, p1, k1.
Wrong side rows: P2, work as normal until 2 sts remain, p2.
