Border help
I'm making a washcloth and I used a trellis lace stitch for the bottom border. How do I mirror it when I get to the top? I think I would start with the third row but I am not sure...

You could just start with row 1 and work the border as given. It won't be an exact mirror but should still look good. For an exact mirror, the simplest thing to do is to knit a separate border and then graft or use 3-needle bind off to attach the purl rows of the border to the live sts of the washcloth.
Is this similar to the pattern stitch you used?
