How to lift the 1st stitch instead of knitting it

In this DROPS video we show you how to lift the 1st stitch on each row if you have trouble getting a nice edge when the 1st stitch is knitted. First we show when the 1st stitch is knitted, then we show how to lift the 1st stitch over instead of knitting it.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in this video.

Hola! Donde puedo encontrar el significado de las abreviaturas usadas? Muchas gracias.

Does this make the vertical edge tight? Does it make the edge curl more than knitting the first stitch?

Dear Mrs Barlow, to get a firmer edge you can work 1/ 2 sts with 2 strands of yarn - see this video. Happy knitting!
