Pattern, Knit in the Round:

Start by knitting in the round using the magic loop method.

CO 4 STS, place a stitch marker in between each stitch, with a unique stitch marker for the beginning of your round, split 2 STS per needle. {or you can use DPN’s.}

 

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 4: *INC1, K3, INC1, SM, K3, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 5: *K5, SM, INC1, K3, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

 

Round 6: *INC1, K5, INC1, SM, K5, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 7: *K7, SM, INC1, K5, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

 

Round 8: *INC1, K7, INC1, SM, K7, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 9: *K9, SM, INC1, K7, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

 

Round 10: *INC1, K9, INC1, SM, K9, 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 1: [P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB | SM | KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1] repeat 1 more time

Round 2: *P1, K1* {slip markers as you come to them}

Round 3: [KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1 | SM | P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB] repeat 1 more time

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. :(
