Chain selvedges for crochet edgings.

Oh, just finish me already.


Doesn't that look tiny? It's the beginnings of the right front piece of my pretty cotton jacket. The right end looks a bit tighter than the left end, but that's because the right end is a free edge, so I decided to do a chain selvedge on that end by slipping the first stitch knitwise and then purling it on the WS (the left end is just a stockinette stitch selvedge, because I'll be hiding it in a seam). I'll be doing a row of single crochet on the free edges of the front of the jacket and I think that a chain selvedge looks neater for doing crochet edgings.
