Umm ... OR one can avoid the 'problem' altogether and knit a slip-stitch edge as one knits! How? On every row, slip the first stitch as though to purl, pass the yarn to the back between the needle tips, and knit the last stitch.
Alternatively, slip the first stitch knitwise and purl the last.
Both result in a nice, smooth edge on any knitted fabric, not just garter stitch.
yes, i was going to suggest this. i am knitting a scarf at present and it told me to slip the first stitch purlwise and it gives a really neat, flat edge. great.
