Pattern Notes

It may be helpful to place a removable marker in the corner stitches of each rnd of border.

For the first rnd of border you will need to work 2 sc in a dc about 1/3 and 2/3 the way across top and bottom of blanket to get the required number of sc.

For Rnd 6 of border, one side of the corner sc has 5 sc in the 5 ch-sp and the other side has 4 sc in the 5 ch-sp.
