I'm sorry, I was thinking that the first color was the border--I feel like I have to rush when I'm here at work.
All the way across, you knit the first row. Then in the second row, on the darker side, you have the pattern of k3, p3, as they appear on the front, so on the back you would p3, k3.
On the lighter side the first two rows are in st st, so knit the first row, purl the second row, and purl the third row.
"Trust the pattern!"
Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
