Three stitches at each

borders. If desired, slip the first stitch of every row purlwise for
a smoother edge finish.

Slip 2 sts from left needle to right needle, one at a time, without
knitting them, then insert left needle from left to right through
those 2 sts and knit them together from this position.

crochet in same stitch.

Note: if using stitch
markers to denote border stitches, place one after the first 3 sts
and another before the last 3 sts. Slip markers every row.
