To make the border with the contrasting color, I used the same stitch pattern. For the corners, I did sc 1, ch 2, sc 1. To start a new row for the border, I joined the row with a sl st, ch 1, 1 sc. Then, I went back to following the pattern until the finished size was 18” w x 18 ½” h (46 cm x 47 cm). Fasten off and weave in all the ends.
