What's a border stich? Can anyone describe to me how to do it? I found this pattern on the internet but I'm having some trouble with the pattern.

It says Row 3 : K 3 ( border st) K 2, * P 2, K 2 * repeating between *'s across, ending with K 3 border st.

Thanks in advance

What are you knitting? Do you have a link?

I think all it means is that the k3 will be the border on whatever you are making. If you look at the pattern instructions I bet each row startsand ends with a k3.

basically it is telling you that those K3 stitches are your border and not techinally part of the "pattern." (hope that made sense...lol)

Thanks for the response.

The pattern has a row that looks like:
Row 3 : K 3 ( border st) K 2, * P 2, K 2 * repeating between *'s across, ending with K 3 border st.

So, would I just K3 and then K2...
