JOSEPHINE'S SQUARES adding a border

Josephine will add a fifth color to create a Garter Stitch border on each individual square by picking up three stitches to four rows around.  Pick up your stitches then begin with a round of purls, alternating with a round of knit, place ring markers at each corner then increase one stitch outside each marker on the knit round -- work six rounds of Garter Stitch pattern then bind-off purlwise.  Sew squares together to form Mystery Blanket and work an additional border using the same pick-up formula and miter the four edges of your Mystery Blanket.
