Note: For the Border, use the Contrast Yarn DOUBLED. You can either pull from the inside and the outside of one ball of yarn, or pull one strand from each of two balls.
With the Contrast Yarn and a 40 inch, US #13 needles, begin the border at any corner:
*Pick up 60 stitches to the next corner, place a marker, repeat from * until you have returned to the beginning corner. For the last marker, use a different color in order to indicate the beginning of the round. (240 stitches) I don't understand what is being communicated right here.
The border is knit in the round. Join the round by knitting into the first stitch you picked up.
Round 1: Knit.
Round 2: *K1, make 1 right, knit to the next marker, make 1 left, slip the marker, repeat from * to the end of the round. (8 stitches increased)
Rounds 3 and 4: Repeat Rounds 1 and 2.
Round 5: Knit.
Round 6: Purl.
Round 7: Knit.
Round 8: *K1, k2tog, knit to 2 stitches before the next marker, ssk, slip the marker, repeat from * to end of round. (8 stitches decreased)
Rounds 9 and 10: Repeat Rounds 7 and 8.
Now is a good time to weave in any ends.
