Three border options and a center that you can stripe any way you want or not at all give you lots of room to play. The center is knit first from one corner to the opposite side. Choose the scalloped border, the fun and funky flap border, or a minimalist garter band. The scalloped and flap borders use the live stitches plus picked up stitches form the other side. The simple banded border is knit one side at a time, first using the live stitches and then picked up stitches on the other side and top edge. Three specific stripe patterns are given as a starting point. Mix and match them with the borders or use your own idea for the center.
