Baby Blanket Border Help
Baby Blanket

Border: knit every row 10 rows (5 stiches Knit on the edges)

Body: Stockinette Stitch

Now my question is....

HOW DO I START THE BOTTOM BORDER SO THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THE OTHER SIDE...?

I'm not sure which side should be facing and how i should start the 10 rows of Knit.

Just knit every row to start, then when you go to start the stockinette st, decide which side of it looks better to you and call it the RS. The rows on the other side will be the purl rows for the WS of stockinette. When you finish (is that what you mean) just knit a WS row instead to start your 10 rows of garter st and BO when you've done them. If you're off one row it won't be that noticeable.

That is what i started to do but because the border is a different color it didn't look the same. so i waited and switched colors on a RS row and knit for 1 row, then 9 consecutive knit rows. i think it made a better transition...THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INSIGHT!

Oh, if you're switching colors (you didn't mention that) then it is better to do that on the RS row.
