The first color rows--the border--are 5 rows of knit--garter stitch.

When you look at a chart, basically what you're seeing is what the pattern will look like on the front. If the boxes are empty, a knit appears on the front. If there is a dot, a purl appears on the front. So striped empty/dot rows are garter, all empty rows are stockinette.
