How to Get a Good Looking Edge Stitch

Ever wonder how to get a better looking edge stitch? Well wonder no more. A good looking edge is as simple as a slip stitch. All you have to do is slip the first stitch of every row before you start your pattern. It creates a lovely chain stitch on the edge that looks good for items that the edge will show such as scarves or blankets. For items that are going to be sewn, it works well for lining up pieces to sew loops together. Give it a try and see what you think.
