I'm making the handle of a bag that was knitted in the round. I bound off 9 sts, knit 22, bound off 9 and knit 22. That starts the handle and it says you work in seed stitch and work each side separately (I'm assuming in back and forth rows now on straights).
Anway, after I bind off 5 sts at beginning of next 2 rows, it says to knit 2 sts together thru back loops at beginning of every following row and work "edge stitch" at end of every following row until 8 sts remain. Then you work that as long as you want this handle then go to the other side and do that handle.
Anyway, I don't know what an edge stitch is that I'm supposed to do at the end of every row. Is it a decrease?
