Slipping the first stitch

Hi everyone
I am knitting a child’s pullover in a basket weave pattern and it will need to be seamed. I see a lot of people refer to slipping the edge stitch for easier seaming. Isthat possible to do when you are doing a pattern rather than just stocking stitch.

Some people do like the slipped edges, but I think if you’re going to seam I’d skip it. Usually seaming is just inside the edge stitch anyway.

Thanks jan , I just thought it would make seaming easier but if it doesn’t I’ll just go ahead
Thanks again
