? re "slip first stitch for nice edge"

Regarding pattern instruction that says slip first stitch for a nice edge (particular for scarfs, etc.), does that literally mean to simply slip the first stitch on the row (as though knitting it) from left to right needle and continue the pattern on the second stitch on?

I think so, but want to be sure. It looks odd when I do it....

I am currently working on knitted mitered squares made on straight needles and using double decreases in the middle to make the mitre. The pattern slips the first stitch as if to knit, does the row in garter stitch except for the double decrease and then purls the last stitch. This makes a nice edge finish or an easy edge to pick up stitches for the next attached square.
