Keeping an even edge when knitting

Hi ladies, I tried the technique (slipping the first stitch of a row to keep things even) but I saw a “site” at some point mentioned here where you “purl” the last stitch and “knit” the first…Am I correct? Does anyone have the site? And or know that technique? I am thinking “selvage edge” Can you only use this “technique” with garter stitch pattern? Or does it work on st st too and ribbing???

Thanks alot

Is it the chain selvedge that you’re thinking of??

yes, that’s the one…Thank you!!!

You’re welcome! :smiley:
