  •  
  • Round 1: *K1, SM* {repeat 4 times}
  •  
  • Round 2: *INC1, K1, INC1, SM, K1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
  • Round 3: *K3, SM, INC1, K1, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

  • Round 11: *K11, SM, INC1, K7, INC9, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
  •  
  • I think you have the hang of it now, so you’ll want to repeat rounds 10 & 11 until you’ve reached your desired size.
  •  
  • Knit all the STS in the round before you start your border, leaving the 4 stitch markers in place.
  •  
  • Border:

  • Round 4: *K1, P1* {slip markers as you come to them}
  • Round 5: [P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB | SM | KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1] repeat 1 more time
  • Round 6: *P1, K1* {slip markers as you come to them}
  •  
  • BO:
  • [*KFB, put both STS on right needle slipping the first stitch over the second, BO knitting the knit STS and purling the purl STS {this will give you a stretchy edge} your last stitch before your stitch marker, KFB, put both STS on right needle slipping the first stitch over the second, BO last ST, remove stitch marker*] repeat 4 times
  •  
  • Weave in the ends.
  •  
  • You can block it if you want to. I blocked mine, several times, and the center never laid completely flat. :(
